The WG 5 Covert Fibre-Scope kit contains two 1mm x 600mm fibre-scopes, one 0° forward viewing and one 65° side viewing, for use through pinholes.
It also includes a 6mm x 600mm non-conductive ‘obedient’ fibre-scope for checking drilling progress.
Viewing of the endoscope images can be made with the eye, or on the T800 fully rugged tablet PC via the WG 3 USB low light endoscope camera.
It includes a pinhole bullet microphone kit with special insertion tool and a basic set of two tactical motion sensors.
It is ideal for use with low noise covert drilling operations.
1MM THROUGH WALL FIBRE-SCOPES
The 0° forward viewing direction instrument enables direct view into a subject room with a field of view of 60°. The 65° viewing direction version fills the blind space that cannot be seen by the 0° forward viewing model. If the 65° version is rotated, the entire inner surface of the wall can be scanned for objects or people. If both the 0° and the 65° versions are used during an operation the entire room can be covered. Please see examples below.
OBEDIENT NON-CONDUCTIVE FIBRE-SCOPE
This fibre-scope has a 6mm diameter with internal illumination and an ‘obedient’ (position-able) insertion tube. The instrument is designed to be used to check the progress of holes being drilled. Such monitoring may be to view changes in building materials at different stages, dust build up, and most importantly the final pin-holing stage. As it may be used many times during an operation, the insertion tube is finished with a tough black plastic outer covering to minimise metal scratching noises.
The covering and tip are also non-conductive (spark-proof) for safety when checking unknown areas inside walls. The LED light source operates from 2 x AA cells, which are readily available. This instrument is normally used with the naked eye but can also be connected to the Getac T800 via the WG3 camera.
GETAC T800 WINDOWS TABLET PC
The Getac T800 is selected as the ultimate viewing device for the WG3 system. It’s compact 8” screen size and tough design are just the beginning of the list of features. The unit is ruggedized to MIL-STD 810G and IP65 water/dust resistant, with long battery life. Most importantly it utilises a USB3 port which means the latest WG3 endoscope camera can be deployed. Viewing of the images is made using the pre-loaded software. The viewing window size can be adjusted by dragging the corner of the window to the desired position. Image zooming is made by pinching the touchscreen or clicking +/- on the toolbar. A full menu of adjustable camera settings means that the optimum result can be obtained in varying light conditions. Once complete, the settings can be saved so that each time the system is opened they are the same as previously used. The software has still image and video recording facility.
WG3 USB LOW LIGHT ENDOSCOPE CAMERA
The most advanced low light endoscope camera. The sensor is a Sony IMX265 and utilises Sony’s Pregius global shutter CMOS technology meaning crisp, clear distortion free images at high speeds. The lens interface is ‘C-mount’ and fitted with our 35mm endoscope coupler.
Resolution is up to a huge 2048 x 1536 pixels at 55frames per second. This specification far out-performs requirements for use with 1mm fibre-scopes and provides confidence that the very best image possible can be obtained through the fibre.
A full range of on-screen controlled camera settings are available such as Gain, Gamma, Exposure, Brightness, Sharpness and frame rate. All this enables a useable fibre-scope video image in low light conditions without graininess and with full speed motion (no ‘stepped’ video delay with fibre-scope movement).
The WG3, with the GetacT800 is probably the highest specification viewing combination that can be used with surveillance fibre-scopes.
TACTICAL MOTION SENSORS
The tactical motion sensors are a wireless PIR motion detection system. A discreet alert signal (Vibration or earpiece bleep) is sent to a pocket-sized receiver if a large object (human) passes within 3 metres of a sensor. The sensors are numbered 1 and 2, and the corresponding number will be indicated on the receiver. This way one can identify which sensor/area has been triggered. The system, although very simple is effective at providing perimeter security during a covert operation. This basic kit contains 2 sensors. The receiver is charged via USB, and the sensors are powered by high drain lithium ½ AA cells.
PINHOLE MICROPHONE KIT
A 9mm diameter bullet sized pinhole microphone with specially made installation and extraction tools. A 2-piece (580mm length max) rigid guide tube is used to take the microphone into a pre-drilled hole. Supplied with the kit is a very compact high-quality amplifier unit with volume control, mic input and earphone output. The amplifier is charged via USB and supplied with earbud type headphones.
