Meerkat LFA (Lightweight Fine Adjust) is an ultra compact lightweight unit which has been optimised for size and weight and designed to allow the user to easily fit a variety of sensor payloads, including those featuring digital magnetic compasses.


The tripod is particularly useful for applications where the payload line of sight must be precisely positioned onto a distant object of interest.
