Features & Benefits

Applications, Features and Benefits

The WS-TPS-A9D is a hand held Dual Mode (Thermal and IR Illuminated B&W video) thermal pole camera system that is used as a tactical surveillance tool to increase the safety and effectiveness of a tactical mission. The system allows operators to see into areas that may harbor an unknown and hidden danger using a thermal camera head that creates video images from heat signatures. The camera can be switched to B&W video mode to further discern details that may not be available with thermal imagery. The thermal camera works especially well outdoors to look for hiding suspects or recently discarded weapons or packages, etc. Utilizing the thermal camera on a pole provides additional observation options not attainable from a direct view handheld thermal camera. The modular design is ruggedly built and compatible with many other Zistos specialty cameras such as thermal, under-door, videoscopes, low light color, throw-robots.

The system is designed to utilize reliable hard wired video that cannot be intercepted by media or other third parties, remotely detected using smart phones or trigger an IED. Wireless operation is available as an option upon request. The system is ideally suited for looking up into attics, down in basements, crawlspaces, to provide visual intelligence on the location and status of a suspect who may present a danger to law enforcement personnel.
