   Helmet Cameras with microwave picture transmission

A range of helmet-mounted cameras for military, police and fire service use.

Britannia 2000 has developed a range of helmet and body-worn camera systems for the Military , Police and Fire Service use. The cameras can be built into a user-supplied helmet or mounted on a side attachment. The attachment places the camera at eye level and can be mounted on the left or right of the helmet.

For Fire Brigade and Public Order applications, the camera does not interfere with breathing apparatus (BA) and fits inside the helmet visor. The system is in service with UK Fire Brigades.

For military applications, the camera does not interfere with respirators.

Pictures from the camera can be recorded on to a belt-worn miniature video recorder and also tramsmitted back to a control vehicle using a proven body-worn microwave video transmission system. Antennae for the transmission system are either built in to the helmet or belt mounted. The antennae are flat patches and do not affect operational efficiency

  • Colour or monochrome
  • Lightweight
  • Cameras built in to helmet or external mount
  • Variety of cameras for different applications
  • Helmet-mounted or belt-mounted transmitted
  • High capacity batery packs
  • Accomodates mutiple cameras
  • Compatible with MAVIS camera control receiver
  • Compatible with surveillance case
  • Interface for weapons-mounted cameras
  • Optional body-worn video for evidence gathering

Each transmission system can accomodate two cameras as standard. An indicator shows the wearer which camera is transmitting. A thermal imager can also be used with the system and interface cables are available for most manufacturers models.

The range of the transmission system varies with the operational enviroment, but free space range is in the excess of 1km. Vehicle or portable repeater stations can extend this range up to 80km depending on topograghy.

All Britannia 2000 helmet camera systems (HCS) are compatible with the MAVIS camera control receiver and Surveillance Cases.

Each HCS can be set to a unique frequency. Multiple HCS can report back to a single receiver station. 16-Channel receivers are used in all Britannia Systems and multiple cameras can be monitored by a single receiver station. Where concurrent reception from more than one HCS is required, more than one receiver can be fitted in to a receiver station.

Audio transmission alongside the video is standard.
