IMBQ_NVL Naval Tracking Mount

The IMBQ-NVL Naval Tracking Mount is designed for shipboard applications.   It is available with optional IMU, INS stabilization, as well as fibre optic slip rings.   The photo above is an IMBQ-NVL being assembled and wired for conformance testing.  Once the pan/tilt has been tested to meet our standards it will be painted and shipped to our customer's site.

Like all IMAGO tracking moutng the IMBQ-NVL is designed to avoid parallax errors.  This seperates our tracking mounts from many of our competitors as their optics are offset from the axes of rotation and introducing parallax errors.  Parallax may exceed the pan/tilt accuracy without a range correction.
