ESC BAZ wins surveillance mast system contract

28th November 2011 - 18:23 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


ESC BAZ has announced that it has won a contract from country in Central Asia to provide the TOM SMS advanced vehicle-mounted surveillance mast system. The company made the announcement in a 28 November 2011 company statement. 

According to ESC BAZ, they will provide the system to the unnamed country to provide concealed surveillance for land surveillance, border control, and perimeter security. The system is designed to be installed on vehicles and trailers with pneumatic mast systems of various heights, enabling the deployment of a range of payloads. It can be folded in the rear of the vehicle when not in use, and deployed only when the targeted destination is reached, making it highly covert.

ESC BAZ said the systems are connected by a wireless transmitter to a mobile control and monitoring center. During operation, several vehicles can travel together into the field, with the command and control vehicle stationed in a secured location. Once their destination is reached, all the vehicles in the group can simultaneously perform observation, and wirelessly transmit their live videos to the control vehicle or directly to the headquarters for mission assessment and real-time investigation.

According to the company, the systems are mounted on an exceptionally precise pan-tilt unit equipped with CCD and thermal cameras, which allow color day and night observation from inside the vehicle’s cabin, via the control and display unit (CDU). The surveillance cameras include video stabilisation features that allow them to withstand rugged terrain and harsh weather conditions.
