Aviation Specialties Unlimited (ASU) has delivered 21 customised Ecliptus night vision video cameras to the US Army National Guard, the company announced on 15 August.
The Ecliptus imaging and recording night vision camera is designed for night-time documentation, surveillance and video production. The wireless camera has a 40-degree field of view, GoPro Hero 4 action camera and 12-megapixel resolution.
The camera has a burst mode that captures video at 30 frames per second. It uses military grade AN/PVS-14 objective lens to record night vision images in ultra-high definition, and a 16 GB SD card. GoPro button controls and the GoPro app can be used for controlling the camera modes.
Jim Winkel, president of ASU, said: 'The Army National Guard has unique special mission training and evaluation requirements. ASU's off the shelf Ecliptus was recently selected by the guard for use as a low-light mission recording tool.
'Part of the beauty of Ecliptus is its very small form factor. We were able to leverage its small size as our team of engineers developed a custom solution to satisfy all of the guard's requirements.
