Tugley - Remotely Operated Night Vision Test Platform for iCatcher
The picture on the right is "Tugley", a model 4 x 4 car that was modified as a mobile test bed for iCatcher (and it was a lot of fun too). Tugley currently resides in Townsville Australia, in the home of Ian Gosden who was responsible for the panel work.
Tugley's equipment consisted of a 2.4 GHz video transmitter with separate remote control channel with co-linear antenna design. An electrets microphone with pre-amplifier is used to feed the audio channels of the 2.4 GHz transmitter unit. The vehicle is controlled by a 27 MHz remote control unit, and features 2.5 KV electrified bumper bars, armed remotely. IR Floodlighting is powered from Nickel Metal Hydride (NiMH) battery packs.
Fugley, not pictured here is a 1.394 MHz unit of approximately the same specification with the exception of much longer range (500m+). In addition to the increased range, the inclusion of 0.0015 lux low-light B&W night vision cameras (front and rear) and 12 Ah battery packs make this a very capable remotely operated viewing platform. The output from this vehicle is fed into the input of i-Catcher Sentry so that the cameras can be remotely positioned anywhere in a squre kilometer area around the receiving station and placed in a low power consumption mode while i-Catcher Sentry monitors the camera feed.
