Camera Release
Periscope, R/5 with Slip Rings $9823.00
This new R/5 periscope is similar to the R/4 except the over all size has been reduced to give more
clearance and room in the surveillance van. The main advantage to the R/5 is that is uses slip rings so that
no cables will wind up in remote operations.
The next advantage is the periscope doesn’t need to be raised all the way to get a great picture. Just raise it
just enough to get your picture and view away. The new mirrors are of the highest quality. Flat within a 1/4
of a wave length. Thus, reducing distortion when zooming in on the target.
The hand controller incorporates a joy stick controller for ease of operation.
Operational considerations for the periscope raise and lower functions have been improved with the
addition of limit switches that automatically open the power feed to the control motor when the scope is
in the Fully Raised or Fully Retracted positions. An LED indicator light illuminates to advise the operator
that the scope is down and in the water tight position. Optional use of the raise/retract function remains at
the individual Operator’s discretion based upon deployment requirements to utilize while on station or prior
to arrival. Weather conditions may also impact when to use this function.
REMOTE Controller is available by two-way radio, Wi-Fi and Internet/Cell Phone.
Hand Controller for R/4 & R/5
This hand controller controls the camera PTZ,
iris, focus and zoom. It controls the height and
lowers the top miror for sealing the system
from weather. $854.00

This new R/4 periscope is similar to the R/3 except the over all size has been reduced to give more

it just enough to get your picture and view away. The new mirrors are of the highest quality. Flat within a
1/4 of a wave length. Thus, reducing distortion when zooming in on the target.

Little Joe
Periscope Controller. This new controller, using our standard camera control software will allow full control of a periscope camera system mounted in a surveillance vehicle. Buttons on the
front of the remote controller allows for local control of the periscope.
Little Joe makes a local connection between your lap top computer and the surveillance vehicle
controller and if you desire over the internet connection just install an air modem.
When it comes to tthe cameras and lenses for your operation, you must evaluate what you want to video.
If I were working down town Los Angeles I would use a 15x300mm lens with a standard day/night camera. Now if I were working out in San Bernardino county, like Victorville, working meth labs at a distance, then I would be using our KSL-55 lens with a KSC-111 very low light camera. If you are going to
be working in town and out in the desert, then purchase the QRM, quick release mount which will give
you many options. By the way, thermal camera will not work in standard periscopes. For real night vision
set-up, see our LRS-100 Pocket Scope. This NV scope may screw directly on to the 15 X 300 lens for real
low light operations. See Ron’s application notes.
Day/Night Camera
The new KSC-111 is the latest small controllable day/night
camera on the market. With low light rating of .00001 lux, the
camera maybe used in surveillance vans, drop cars, & many applications.
You will be totally amazed at what you will see at night. Replace those Watec 902H and other similar cameras and up date
your evidence collection capability. Camera also has a digital
$595.00 ZOOM capability of at least 3X.
This is the latest long range lens that is compatible with our PTZ357 Pan & Tilt. This lens when used with a 1/2” chip camera, will
have a zoom range of 10 to 300 MM, and when used with a 1/3 chip
camera will have a zoom range of 22 to 435 MM. And when used
with the new 1/4” chip cameras, the zoom range is 30 to 600 mm.
When used in surveillance vans and our scope, this lens is ideal for
city surveillance and our KSC-111 day/night camera. The lens is a
fast F1.5. 3 motor, isolated ground. KSL-10 X 300 $1,895.00

DC to AC Inverter for the Tiger II A/C Unit KSI-2812
This inverter is a true sine wave inverter with a clean output and very low noise
There are other types of inverters available such as Modified or Square Sine
Wave inverters. They produce noise which translates into Poor 120vac power
shorting the life of your air conditioner and also causing your air conditioner to
operate at a much higher amperage shorting the operational time of the batteries.

Citation 20R Body Wire Receiver
This is our top of the line body wire receiver configured for rack
mount in a surveillance van application. This receiver features: 100
channels, fully frequency programmable, digital audio filters, descrambling option, 12.5 / 25 kHz switchable bandwidths, & Backlit
LCD display. $2400.00
The True Sine Wave inverter receives it operation power from two dedicated deep cycle gel cell batteries.
These batteries connect directly to the inverter creating 120vac power for the air conditioner. The batteries
are charged from the inverters built-in 100 amp multi stage battery charger when the vehicle is plugged into
shore power back at your vehicle storage facility. These batteries AGM or Gel Cell batteries will provide
approximately 8 to 10 hours of operating time on surveillance based on the temperature settings of the air
conditioner and charge rate of the batteries.
ODYSSEY® Batteries has introduced a new rack mount sealed valve-regulated
lead-acid (VRLA) battery that provides deep cycles performance and enormous
cranking power in one battery. The ODYSSEY® KSB-1800 military grade battery provides long duration deep discharge power with an incredible 475 minutes of reserve capacity at 25 amps. The KSB-1800’s rugged
Construction makes it ideal for heavy duty deep cycle applications such as
Fire and Rescue vehicles, Marine, Refrigerated Trailers, RV Motor Coaches, &
Surveillance Vans.
For van design considerations, use 214 Ah. Typically, 2 to 3 batteries for the
A/C and one for the camera systems. Total of 4 batteries. What is really nice
about this battery, is the short cable that are required to parallel the batteries.
The batteries weight is 132.3 lbs each and since they are so compact, they can
be split up to equalize the weight on each side of the van.

This new Whisper microphone system for
interrogation far exceeds any other microphone
system on the market by two fold. The dynamic
range of the amplifiers is so good that the system
can pick up a whisper in the interrogation room.
Just put two suspects in the same room and walk
out for a few minutes, and the two will whisper two each other about their story, and it's all
picked up by the system. Don't buy a recording
system unless it has a stereo input.

Digital Video Recorder/Interface
This DVR converts any analog camera to an intelligent, high resolution surveillance system. The analog A/V signal
from the camera is captured, compressed and stored to an external USB storage media using H.264 video and MP3
audio formats. Ask for data sheet on this product!
When an IP camera is connected to an KSR-HDVR, all of its features are retained, and the IP camera can be fully
controlled through its own PC/Mac application in a transparent manner. The DVR further adds to the functionality of
the IP camera by offering the store and forward A/V stream feature. It records the Motion JPEG video stream of an
IP camera along with its audio footage to an external USB storage device connected to the DVR. The stored contents
can be streamed in H.264 format, for remote viewing. Model KSR-HDVR $2400.00 See Data Sheet

One of the most important things to do when building a surveillance van is to insulate. This is to say, don’t
skimp here. In addition, keep the window glass to a minimum. The floor should be insulated with a minimum
wood floor thickness of a least 3/4” covered in indoor/outdoor carpet. Put reflective insulation under the wood
floor to keep the heat from the street from penetrating.
Once you have insulated the van, installed the floor, and panel the walls and covered the walls with a light
colored sound absorbent felt or similar material, installed your working desk, secured an area for the batteries,
you are new ready to add the video and electronics equipment.
