Real time video from a search dog

Wood PAWS6Specialist wireless communications company, Wood & Douglas, has launched a lower cost, lightweight, Wi-Fi enabled variant of its Portable All-terrain Wireless System, or PAWS, a live video link designed to be worn by military and search trained dogs.

With a head-mounted video camera, PAWS Wi-Fi enables a dog to operate without any discomfort, beaming real-time video to its handler for search and rescue, military operations support, explosives and drugs detection. With a camera that supports low light, high resolution and Infra Red ‘day for night’ vision options, the dog mounted video system can be used to search buildings and difficult to traverse terrain; locate and then positively identify suspect packages, devices, or individuals, providing evidence gathering for prosecution or operational assessment.
