It looks like an earphone, but it is a micro video camera

maggio 29, 2010 Technology No Commenti

When you are doing your morning jogging, with your faithful MP3 player blasting loud music in your ears to help you keep your running pace, no one could possibly suspect that, actually, what looks like a player is not playing music, but instead recording video footage, and that this footage is picked up right through those which, at a first glance, look like normal earphones.

Instead, we are talking about a ear video camera, that is, a miniature camera with an equally small sensor with CCIQ technology, which allows you to achieve a 400 TV-lines resolution video, and to do it in a completely invisible way for those around you. One of the two earpieces contains a micro video camera, while the other one houses a miniature high sensitivity microphone, which gives you the opportunity to add an audio track to your videos.

Thanks to this miniature camera, powered directly from the pocket video recorder it is connected to, you will be able to shoot videos without arising any kind of suspicion, storing them directly on the video recorder, with a capacity depending on the recorder’s available video memory.

Thanks to its secrecy and invisibility characteristics, Ear Cam is suitable for covert operations carried out by law enforcement agents, for example to gather evidence against criminals or mobsters, which can later be used before a court of law to prove their guilt.
In fact, when people do not suspect that they are being taped, they might let their tongue loose and reveal details that might be compromising, and that can be gathered as evidence thanks to the Ear Cam.

For more details on how Ear Cam works, we recommend that you visit the Endoacustica website, where you can contact our consultants, who will be able to give you advice, tailored on your needs in the surveillance field.

An invisibility cloak for armored tanks

maggio 29, 2010 Technology No Commenti

Becoming invisible has always been one of the age-old dreams of mankind, especially for military generals, who dream that their troops could suddenly show up, unseen, behind enemy lines in order to strike and win a battle or a war. Nowadays, the legendary cloak that gives invisibility could be finally stepping into the real world, thanks to a research project carried out by an Israeli manufacturer called Eltics, who have just presented their system, called Black Fox, capable of making an helicopter, an armored tank or even a ship vanish into the air.

Of course this disappearance does not involve dematerialization, nor it is real, but it is instead an invisibility to the sophisticated eyes of radar and defense systems, including those mounted on remotely guide missiles.

For example, to make a tank disappear, the system will set to work by taking images of the environment around it. The next step would involve analyzing the thermal signature of the surrounding area.
At this point, on panels mounted on the outside of the armored tank, the images would be projected, in order to simulate the thermal signature and merge the tank with the environment around it, allowing it to advance without any trouble, especially at night, and to strike its target taken the enemy by surprise.

Any vehicle equipped with this kind of devices is therefore able to successfully escape night vision systems based on detection of the thermal signature, as well as missiles that use the same principle to identify and strike targets thanks to their thermal footprint.

Currently, Black Fox is in its advanced research stages, and could prove absolutely vital for armies which could employ this technology, giving them an undeniable step ahead when darkness falls and the battle starts.

A GPS navigation system for helicopters by Garmin

maggio 29, 2010 Technology No Commenti

Systems manufactured by Garmin are the world’s standard of reference when it comes to GPS navigation and orientation, both on the ground and in the air.
The latest product launched by the Kansas City corporation is an item that is designed for use on helicopters using visual flight rules, as an orientation and navigation support.

The G500H helicopter navigator has just been approved by the FAA, and is equipped with two different displays, where you can see data pertaining to altitude, geographical coordinates, horizontal and vertical speed, as well as, of course, a map of the terrain below the helicopter, and the relevant vehicle position not only related to the terrain, but also in comparison with its route to destination.

By using a complex and powerful computer graphic model, G500H is capable of clearly recreating the characteristics of the terrain below, for example by clearly displaying rivers, hills and any obstacle you may find on your way. All this is graphically rendered in three dimensions, in such a realistic way that is is almost not necessary to look out the window to maintain a completely safe visual flight route, even in conditions of low visibility due to fog.

For those who own a helicopter and should be interested in purchasing it, this navigation system does not exactly come cheap, as its price tag says approximately 25000 dollars. But since wea re talking about helicopters, those who can afford one do not really have this kind of problems. After all, if a medium sized car uses a GPS navigations system worth 10% of the vehicle price, a 250 thousand dollar helicopter can easily keep the same proportion for its GPS, right?

A rifle to strike from behind a corner

maggio 29, 2010 Technology No Commenti

According to a military statistic, approximately half of the soldiers who fall victim of a strike in urban warfare areas, such as for example Baghdad or the Gaza Strip, are struck by enemies hidden behind a corner.

In order to try and reduce this dramatic figure, the American inventor Matthew Hagerty has worked, with his company Landtec, on a 10-year long development project which resulted in the Smart Sight rifle.

The system consists of a wireless video camera, mounted on the muzzle of a M4 rifle, a small pocket computer and a miniature color display applied on a pair of protective glasses. In practice, SmartSight turns the muzzle of the rifle on which it is mounted in a sort of “third eye”; thanks too it, a soldier can stay safely hidden behind a corner, or for example inside a trench, extend the rifle over his head and see, thanks to the display on his glasses, what the camera is seeing.
At this point he will be able to strike without being exposed to danger.

The rifle-mounted camera weighs approximately something like 1.5 kilos, therefore it can easily be carried without big trouble for its user. The images it picks up are transmitted by Bluetooth connection to the pocket computer, which in turn sends them through a cable to the small display on the soldier’s glasses; the latter will then have an optimal view without being directly exposed. So, even without shooting, SmartSight can be used to assess the situation in the environment around you before turning around a corner in a dangerous area.

Tests on the SmartSight system, which Hagerty has developed with the cooperation and feedback of soldiers deployed in combat areas, will start before the end of the current year.
