May 6, 2014 - Hood River, OR - HoodTech Vision (, a leading manufacturer of stabilized imaging payloads for small unmanned and manned systems, will be demonstrating the recently introduced Alticam 05-EO5, a 4-axis stabilized imaging payload for small to medium unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) at AUVSI's Unmanned Systems 2014 in Orlando, Florida, booth #847. Based on HoodTech Vision's latest EO imaging technology, the Alticam 05-EO5 features a four-axis stabilized gimbal system with coordinate hold mode and embedded video stabilization and tracking functions. The pan-over-tilt payload turret is vibration-isolated with a slew rate of 50 degrees/per second. With dual-mode operation, network/serial and analog (video), the 05 turret includes an embedded video server and an optional network interface.

The new Alticam 05-EO5 is a drop-in replacement for HoodTech's legacy Alticam 06 and Alticam 07 models, offering better optics and improved stabilization. For more information, please visit: To view HoodTech Vision's AUVSI (Unmanned Systems North America 2014) online press kit, please go to:
