'Gimble' style antenna control system

I'm interested in constructing a device to remotely control the position/direction of focus for a wireless networking antenna with an attached camera to view what the antenna is pointing at. The closest device I can assimilate to would be a gimble-type platform used in motion pictures. I'm basically looking for either: prefabricated units, or reference / documentation / website / or similar resource for construction concepts and theory. Antenna unit size is around 40"x25"x20", at about 6lbs.

Appreciation for your time in response is greatly appreciated in advance.

There are remote control units for everything for satellite dishes for RVs to pan and tilt for cameras. For about $120, I found a motorized remote pan and tilt at B&H Photovideo. Made by Bescor, model MP-101. Capacity 6lbs. try:
