IAI to develop a Canine Mounted Wireless Video and Location Streaming System for the DHS

A canine tracking device, designed to relay information to both the dog handler and command center, could be useful in documenting evidence for court hearings, verifying surroundings, and ensuring safety and situational awareness. IAI will develop a reliable, low cost, rugged, canine mounted video and GPS streaming system named CAMEL (Canine Mounted Encompassing Locator). CAMEL collects and processes data from three unique systems; a Canine Borne Unit, a Handler Borne Unit, and a Command Center Unit. The Canine Borne Unit consists of a day/night camera, a GPS receiver, an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), a medium range wireless transmitter, and a load bearing harness. The Handler Borne Unit is composed of a medium range wireless receiver, a processor board, a forearm mounted remote monitor, and a Long Term Evolution (LTE) cellular modem. The Handler Borne Unit’s processor board uses IMU information to stabilize the camera view for the handler and command center. The Command Center Unit consists of a remote monitor and a LTE modem with an optional deployable ground station (for operations in areas without commercial LTE coverage). Pairing the Canine Borne Unit and the Handler Unit forms a lightweight version of the CAMEL system. However, implementing a command center will give users the capability of supporting multiple teams of canines and handlers. CAMEL offers wireless, real-time monitoring, real-time video stabilization, data logging, and location tracking for enforcement personnel.
