When a disaster occurs, a camera payload acts as the eyes of the mission. Having a payload with all the right features can provide valuable information to the response team, saving both time and resources. In life-threatening cases, saving time can save lives. For future missions, here’s what you will need.


Knowing the precise location of an incident or person allows you to quickly communicate its position to the response team. Using this information, the response team can react promptly, whilst making informed decisions. All UAV Vision gimbals have GEO-Lock capability to give precise geographical information and ensure the disaster is managed effectively.

IR Footage

Infra-Red imagery gives you more information about the incident, detecting details that are not visible to the human eye. IR footage can highlight hotspots during a forest fire, detect a survivor, or reveal more information in foggy or smoky conditions. Enhanced knowledge of the incident can improve the efficiency of your rescue mission.

Optical EO and IR zoom

Optical daylight and infrared imagery means you can gather more information, without getting too close to the disaster. This allows you to assess the damage, whilst ensuring a safe and practical operation.


A small and lightweight gimbal can offer greater flexibility as to which platform it can be deployed on. Given that some disaster management missions will use small UAVs or aircraft, a lightweight gimbal is essential for saving on weight. This also means that aircraft has more available weight for emergency supplies. Here at UAV Vision, we provide flexible, low SWaP-C gimbals for simple integration on a range of platforms.
