The new Polecat is an advanced wireless high level camera platform system designed to carry the weight of PTZ camera and its power supply and microwave transmitter in instances where it is urgent to obtain a high surveillance post in all operational conditions.
It has been designed to assist at Public Order events/Prisons/Border control and many more operational situations including Military usage to produce pictorial evidence for the operational commander by using standard street furniture such as lamp posts or poles.
The unit once clamped to the pole will self adjust as it makes its climb utilising its highly sophisticated roller arms on posts varying from 6 to 22cm.
It is commanded by a handheld wireless controller.
It will remain in position for periods of up to 60 hours before it needs to be recovered and its onboard sealed lead acid batteries need recharging.
The unit will carry weights of up to 40 kilos, which adequately covers many of the technical solutions needed in these urgent deployments of high level video monitoring equipment. The unit is not easily accessible by unauthorised persons.
