Periscope camera for covert operations

by Andy Clutton

MEL Micro PeriscopeMelsecure International has launched a new Super Mini Periscope camera.  Designed for use in mobile or fixed covert surveillance operations, this IP65 rated camera is engineered for operation in all weather conditions and can be deployed in a range of concealed locations providing a solution to meet tactical ‘drop and run’ surveillance requirements.

The new Super Mini Periscope camera has PTZ functionality, 360° pan with continuous rotation and 60° camera tilt.  It also features a motor drive system that provides precise positioning control even when panning at low speed and, because there is no latency, operators can follow specific events with a PTZ joystick even at the most extreme zoom settings. The camera offers up to 10x optical and 10x digital zoom using a Sony day/night camera module with image stabilisation to provide evidential quality pictures at maximum zoom. The dimensions of the camera are 150 x 70 mm and it weighs 930 grams.

According to Steve Nichols of Melsecure International:  “This new Super Mini Periscope camera can be easily concealed in drainpipes and lamp posts or built-in to vehicles to deliver high quality images without being detected from a wide range of covert locations to meet individual tactical surveillance requirements.”
