K9 DogCam COFDM/MESH Transceiver
The K9 TX is the third generation canine specific wireless camera system in the series. Consolidating recent advancements made in the camera and Mesh product ranges has led to this latest canine video system supporting HD and thermal camera options.
Demand for system flexibility has led to Mesh being the first choice for video transmission. A digital Mesh radio network allows encoded video and audio to be exchanged and shared
between several nodes simultaneously.
As with previous K9 camera iterations COFDM point to point transmission is also supported as an option. The K9 TX is typically mounted on the dog’s spine, it offers excellent range and can typically operate 150m in a non-line of sight scenario even in the most demanding and cluttered
Canine handlers can observe the dog’s POV video using the K9 RX, the portable video receiver partner product. In addition, it incorporates modulated IR LEDS, white LEDS, antennas, a quick release battery pack, an integral microphone and a speaker for audio commands from the
handler to the dog.
This is all housed in an innovative rugged waterproof enclosure with a sprung loaded arm. Releasing the arm activates the system, the spring also prevents the camera being damaged whilst in use. It is extremely robust and field proven even in the most demanding of missions.
The K9 TX also supports GPS positioning and the options of on-board video recording and WiFi video monitoring. Telemetry path control together with input/ouput triggers allow the control of auxiliary systems which can be mounted on the dog. Security of the link is ensured either through standard DES encryption or optional AES128 or AES256.
