containing a 320 x 240 or 640 x 480 thermal imager.
Multiple lens options are available with 35mm and
50mm being standard. 66mm lenses are available in the
640 x 480 model.
• Cast aluminium
• 140º Per second
The SEE is a hardened pan tilt zoom camera containing
a 36x optical zoom colour camera with auto focus,
image stabilisation and 12x digital zoom. Often used
in Patrol CCTV and MARK kits; the SEE camera is
frequently utilised in third party systems where users
create their own interface.
The F50Z is a hardened pan tilt zoom colour camera
with a 320 x 240 Vanadium Oxide thermal imager
good for man size detection out to 1500 ft. The side
by side configuration of the two cameras provides the
best scenario for true image fusion. The front bezel of
the thermal imager functions as a manual focus ring
allowing the camera to be tuned to the desired fixed
field of view. An internal video switch allows the camera
to work in a closed circuit system where only one
coaxial transmission line is available. Through intelligent
programming in the selected protocol, a user is able to
toggle between the two video outputs of the F50Z.

communications and an extensive variety of tracking
devices.
It allows two-way communication between multiple
satellite, cellular and radio frequency providers and has
over forty different types of tracking communications
links, allowing customers the ability to utilise multiple
tracking devices, all integrated under a single UniTrac
architecture.
UniTrac mines tracking and sensor data, delivering
a visual and strategic picture onto any stationary or
mobile computer, with automated, simultaneous and
immediate notifications of alerts via email, pager,
and voice dialler. UniTrac allows any number of links
to feed multiple displays simultaneously. Return
communications such as GPS locations, alerts, and
boundary violations that reach UniTrac are instantly
distributed to the computers, mobile phones, or other
hand held devices that the user designates.

IP Mesh Solutions
Cobham’s fluid, self-forming, self-healing IP Mesh solutions offer true networked integration of video, audio
and GPS with seamless transfer of digital data.
Offering genuine non-line of sight coverage (COFDM), the system is truly mobile and therefore supplies a
network with extended range - one which will deliver in environments too tough for other radio solutions to
cope with. The robust, self-healing IP Mesh architecture makes the product ideal for use in mobile surveillance
applications, command and control, or advanced robotics.
As public networks are subject to outages (either unexpected, or planned), Cobham IP Mesh’s non-reliance
upon commercially available networks means that it delivers unprecedented levels of network availability and
consistently high quality. The highly flexible IP mesh topology means that data can be exchanged between
moving nodes in a point to point or point to multipoint fashion. Range can be extended by using nodes
as repeaters.

The Infantry Crew Station (ICS) is an externallymounted unit which provides a dismounted user with
access to the Intercom and on-board radios (under the
control of the internal crew).
The next generation of reliable, effective
communications in any combat environment. Fast, safe,
secure and reliable communications are an essential
element of mission success in today’s battlefield. The
TacG2 system enables vehicle mounted troops to do this
even in the most demanding of missions. The system is
made up of a number of standard units, which can be
‘mixed-and-matched’ to satisfy the specific functional
and technical configuration requirements.
The Tactical Gateway System (TGS) can be used as a
single box intercom solution for applications that require
only two crew positions and up to three radios. This unit
is required for all vehicle configurations and provides
direct connection to the vehicle prime power. Additional
units are added into the system by simply adding units to
the station cabling which takes the form of a ‘ring’ routed
around the vehicle.

Protocol (SIP) server, providing Voice over IP (VoIP)
telephony between any valid local SIP extension. The
telephony network may then be scaled-up by simply
interconnecting M200E units. The M200E incorporates
five 10/100Mb/s Ethernet Ports to interconnect up to five
vehicles in a multi-vehicle network without any additional
infrastructure. Alternatively, they can be used to connect
vehicle-mounted equipment to both the TacG2 and an
external Wide Area Network (WAN).

Video Surveillance
Cobham’s overt and covert COFDM video surveillance systems enable the monitoring and recording of critical
video data through non-line of sight (NLOS) and line of sight (LOS) transmission systems.
The quality offered by the solutions means that very high evidential standards can be reached in situations
such as:
• Infrastructure protection
• Identification and monitoring of terrorist threats
• Monitoring of serious crime
• Public order policing
• Intelligence gathering
Cobham systems are not reliant on public or commercially available networks for either wireless video
transmission or onward distribution of video data making them more secure and flexible for law enforcement
and surveillance organisations.

• 12V DC or 28V DC optional
• Companion VETA receivers with diversity reception
Benefits:
The VETA High Power Transmitter provides several
key features that enable high-quality and low-latency
wireless Audio/Video (A/V) transmission for the most
demanding short or long distance point to point or
point to multipoint transmission applications. The VETA
product line supports optional 1.25MHz or 2.50MHz RF
bandwidth with 400 carriers that allow a large quantity
of simultaneous A/V links to operate in the same
frequency band. Additionally, the standard DVB-T 2K
carriers with bandwidths of 6, 7, or 8MHz may be user
selected. These higher bandwidths provide greater
throughput that allow the system to transfer the
highest quality video.

• Low delay
The Messenger Portable Decoder (MPD) is a compact
professional 4:2:2 MPEG2 digital audio/video decoder
that is designed to be a companion to the Messenger
Smart Receiver (MSR). A mounting plate is provided
that allows the MSR to be mounted on top of the MPD.
Two fans on the MPD provide cooling for both the MPD
and the MSR. The ASI output of the MSR is fed into the
MPD, which receives the MPEG2 TS stream, decodes it
and outputs signals via the analogue/video ports,
SDI/AES ports. These units can be controlled via either
the RS-232C or USB control ports.
An optional 19-inch rack-mounted shelf is available
that can mount up to two MPD/MSR in just 134mm
of rack space. Additionally, an optional in-line AC/DC
power supply is available.
