PRONTO is the latest rapid deployment remote camera system, following in a long line of systems that originated in 1992.
PRONTO uses the latest technology RHINO wireless IP mesh network transmission system developed by Britannia 2000. This enables the user to control multiple cameras on a single RF channel, and also use each PRONTO camera as an automatic relay station so that a wireless network is automatically created simply by deploying the cameras in an area.
The IP system can be connected to a variety of existing systems, for example a 3G or SatCom data uplink, or an existing city centre IP infrastructure. The camera system is based on the UV90 colour / mono camera with a high efficiency IP codec and RHINO wireless integrated internally.
The all new 2744 Airborne CF Recorder/Player will record and play back high quality video and audio and will continue to record whilst playing back previously recorded sequences.
Using the latest high speed, high capacity CF cards, the 2744 will playback the video actually recorded on the solid state removable memory card itself, enabling operators to check that the system is operating correctly as part of pre-flight checks.
The unit records the video and audio onto the memory card as an MPEG2 bit stream, providing both the highest video quality and reliability available.
An optional NVIS filter can be installed for NVG compatibility.
Britannia 2000 offers a wide range of cameras, varying from small, rugged cameras suitable for local situational awareness, to large, long range surveillance cameras, used for border patrol.
Equipped with the latest technology such as electron multiplied CCDs (EMCCD) to thermal Iimaging devices, the cameras are designed to withstand and exceed the demands expected by the military and are fitted to armoured vehicles and border surveillance towers alike.

These cameras are utilised as part of our sniper control system, which captures the image as viewed by the sniper team, and transmitted to the commander locally via the RHINO mesh network, or the video can be sent directly to the unit headquarters via 3G network.
