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. The user can position the payload, lock the line of sight and then use the fine adjust mechanism to make very fine adjustment s to achieve precise alignment.
