It is highly desirable to have operator gun scope image recordable or wirelessly trans- mit the data to another operator in real time. Usually this kind of problem results in relatively expensive solution — custom designed camera that is difficult to maintain. Electronics become quickly outdated in the rapidly developing marketplace. TPL has utilized one of the most widely available COTS camera manufactured by GoPro™ (www.gopro.com). These cameras, called Hero™ have been used for auto racing, skiing, bicycling, surfing and many other sports. TPL unique design provides optical components that mate any Hero™ camera to gun scopes, scopes or provide stand- along solution for long-range monitoring.
Hero™ cameras provide 12Mpixel photo and video recording capability, including 1080p at 60fps using standard H.264 format. Cameras can be remotely controlled by WiFi or smartphones or tablet. Devices can simultaneously record photos and videos and are waterproof (in housing) to 60 meters.
