The Through-The-Wall (TTW) system was created specifically to support tactical missions and generate visual intelligence - as sensitive events are unfolding. Ideally suited for hostage/barricade scenarios, the TTW system also has value in support of breaching operations. It contains specially designed covert tools that allow observation into an adjacent interior room through a sheetrock wall. The TTW system can be applied when there are no other means available to visually assess a situation.
The Through-The-Wall system utilizes a high performance, low-light camera equipped with a specially designed pinhole zoom lens, as well as drills and cutting tools necessary to quietly and unobtrusively install the system. The camera and drill mounting brackets are installed on the wall in the room where the tactical team is positioned. This is accomplished using a uniquely designed wall board cutter that is designed to maximize stealth. A second quiet drill tool is then used to support the lens access through the adjacent wall. The system allows the operators to see events in the interior room through a small 1/8” (3.2mm) pinhole opening. The system supports invisible IR illumination of the room with an included illuminator through a second pin hole, if necessary.
The system is available in a configuration with just the camera, illuminator and toolset, or in a complete “turnkey” configuration with a WalkAbout portable display and power source. The system includes the low-light pinhole zoom camera, cables and all tools – stud finder, hand drill, specialized drill bit and jig – necessary to drill the mounting hole on one side of the wall and a pinhole size opening on the other side.
It is fully compatible with the Zistos Universal Wi-Fi Link (UWL), if local transmission of the video to command vehicles, PCs, tablets and other mobile devices are required.
