MG-120E is a light-weight and small HD drone gimbal camera developed by JOUAV. The camera integrates infrared sensors and optical sensors at the same time, which can be used in drone security, surveillance, search, and rescue applications.
Benefits and Features
MG-120E is a 3-axis high stabilized gimbal camera with 30x optical zoom and thermal sensors. This dual sensor is designed for use on JOUAV drones. In addition to live video feeds, it also features AI target tracking,  day and night reconnaissance and surveillance of target areas.
30X Zoom and 1080P Visible Light Sensor
The camera is available for long-range detection, recognition, and identification of humans, animals, vessels, and vehicles.
Integrated with an Uncooled Thermal Sensor
Using a 640 × 512 thermal camera, MG-120E allows detection and recognition of very small objects at night or low visibility.
AI Intelligent Identification
The camera can autonomously detect and identify various types of moving targets and determine their location throughout the day and night.
Auto Object Tracking Function
With the on-board AI-assist function, MG-120E can guide the aircraft to fly and track moving targets without the need for ground station software.
3-axis Gimbal Stabalizer
Using 3-axis gyroscopes, MG-120E will automatically correct any jumpy and jittery movements to provide a steadier and clearer image.
Precise Target Geo-location
Automatically correct data errors based on terrain elevation data and then calculates the precise geographic location of the target.
