Crew Remote View System


  • Situational awareness for armoured vehicles
  • Force protection or perimeter surveillance
  • Mine and IED clearance

The Crew Remote View System consisting of a separate camera and display unit has been designed to address the need for a lighter and more versatile method of providing armoured vehicle crew with a reliable remote viewing capability.

Optimised for passive (no external illumination) short range observation over any daylight condition (Dusk till Dawn) the system display provides a crystal clear image from the sensitive (<20mLux) black and white, low light, auto iris camera unit. Multiple systems (camera + display) can be combined to satisfy specific panoramic remote viewing needs.

Both camera and display unit are compact, rugged and resistant to high levels of shock and vibration with built in filtering to allow reliable connection to a vehicle power supply.
