    Eyes in the Forest

    A few years back, Mark got the idea from the Washington State border patrol (responsible for controlling the heavily forested border between Washington and British Columbia) to make an infrared camera system that could be deployed anywhere in the field and camoflauged for concealment. 

    The initial result of this brainstorm was the "Bertha" IPSS (Integrated Perimeter Surveillance System). The basic setup involves a high-power infrared Matrix IV camera mounted on a Bogen tripod and accompanied with a long-range transmitter/receiver unit. As seen in the pictures, both are already camoflauged appropriately for the environment and can be changed to adapt to different settings (e.g. desert, adobe, urban concrete etc.). 

    The second major part of the setup is a mobile C&C (command & control) center. This is composed of four main components: a receiver/transmitter, video monitor, unit controller, and DVR. The monitor, DVR, and controller can all be integrated into a ruggedized briefcase or kept seperate depending on the need. This mobile briefcase configuration is ideal considering the usual application.

    One final note: the pictures below show the Matrix IV camera in a fixed "point-and-shoot" configuration, but can easily be substituted with a PTZ like the "Hammerhead."
