Bradenton, FL – Trakka Systems announces its partnership with AirBear Tactical Aircraft for the delivery of a custom Cessna 206 to a California Law Enforcement Agency. The aircraft has been retrofitted with a TrakkaCam TC-300 multi-sensor EO-IR surveillance camera on a retractable mount and integrated with the TrakkaMaps TM-100 moving maps mission management system. By combining the integrated surveillance package, our partnership has produced the first in-service surveillance solution in the ALE fixed-wing market.
Trakka’s TC-300 HD EO/IR camera with advanced features and sophisticated image processors embedded within the single-LRU 4-axis gyro-stabilized gimbal exploit images from different sensors to extract features that would otherwise go undetected by a single sensor.
The TrakkaCam TC-300 is available with a full suite of seven payloads: I.R., HDTV, LRF, L.P., LI, A/T, IMU/GPS. The camera features continuous optical zoom with picture- in-picture, split-screen, contrast enhancement and moving target detection. The TrakkaCam TC-300 improves mission success and reduces operator workload in challenging conditions.
The TrakkaMaps TM-100 moving maps & video management system brings a total solution to mission management, one which is designed to perfectly complement Trakka’s range of sophisticated, advanced camera and searchlight systems. TrakkaMaps TM-100 is a full- featured mission mapping and video management system that can run on various computer platforms, including notebooks and ruggedized laptops. The affordable and flexible architecture is easily customizable with both open-source databases and user proprietary secure databases. Designed to integrate with TrakkaCam cameras, the TM-100 can slew the camera line of sight to any point on the map with the touch of the screen, mouse click, address, intersection, city, points of interest or coordinate entries. In addition, the TM-100’s intuitive touchscreen controls offer 3D, street, satellite and custom map views, available with augmented reality overlays on live video imagery.
The responsibilities of airborne law enforcement (ALE) are wide-ranging, and their missions are critical, complex, and highly coordinated. On any given day, ALE aircrews could be surveilling criminals, extinguishing fires, monitoring crowds, or airlifting injured civilians. Utilizing the right equipment is essential, as it will provide heightened awareness to the pilots and ground officers in any situation. Trakka Systems’ total package solution can be customized to meet the requirements of any mission. Our high-intensity TrakkaBeam can be tailored to include multispectral filters to optimize illumination for your mission’s environment. With TrakkaBeam’s seamless slaving to TrakkaCam’s gyro-stabilized EO/IR camera, visibility will be further heightened with thermal imaging, U.V. detecting, and recording capabilities. TrakkaMaps completes the package with its fully-equipped, intuitive design that allows the aircrew to observe the environment below with satellite, street-view, or live augmented reality overlays.
