Butler Group Secure Solutions Tactical Communications MPX Stabilisation

MPX Stabilisation

Digital Barriers offers the multi-function MPX real-time sensor processing and fusion platform to overcome the challenges of operating in hostile operational and environmental conditions. It features a range of optimised, power efficient imaging techniques that directly enhance the amount of information visible, or by providing a stable artefact free image.

MPX XY and XYR stabilisation are processing functions that compensate for the effect on imagery of unwanted camera motion - achieving this in real-time. The function has been developed to address both translational (XY) and rotational (XYR) stabilisation and shifts the image so that the subject of interest remains stationary. Edge regions of the image displayed to the user may appear black where there is no image data to display due to the stabilisation.


The stabilisation processing is effective in a range of situations – whether the motion is benign and repeatable or unpredictable. For example, it can enhance navigation on a pitching vessel, remove the distracting vibrations associated with vehicle-mounted cameras, or mitigate the effects of wind on stationary pole-mounted cameras. Further, since many surveillance and targeting systems make use of narrow field of view optics, small vibrations can lead to highly unstable imagery being presented to the operator, requiring a stabilisation solution.

MPX is an extremely powerful and adaptable platform that offers the option to implement a range of processing functions in software or hardware – depending on the complexity of the application, speed of deployment and power considerations. It can be used to enable in-line processing enhancements, as part of an enhancement to a current in-service system, or as part of an integrated enhancement embedded within the sensor itself. MPX algorithms have been optimised as a result of thorough testing and trials across land, sea and air domains.
