Aircraft customizing, maintenance and support provider, AeroBrigham has announced the company will provide integration, distribution and support services for a revolutionary and cost-effective means to send encrypted video and audio from aerial platforms anywhere in the world. Serastar Technologies Corporation’s Surveillance, Target Acquisition, Recon System (STARS) equipment allows streaming video in a compact ISR video transmission and recording platform using simultaneous Wi-Fi, 3G/4G, MANET Radio and Harris™ tactical transceivers so it is not dependent on having line of sight access. A secure back end server (internet) allows the signal to be distributed to authorized and authenticated users around the globe. The simple operation and very low maintenance system can record up to six hours of video via PVR integrates with Android Tactical Assault Kit (ATAK) and has remote playback and recording with VLC, QuickTime or other compatible player mediums.
With a much lower weight system, the STARS technology also has a significantly lower cost than traditional microwave downlink type real time video feeds from airborne platforms. The system is capable of processing any analog video signal and converting to a digital format to transmit the feed. Examples of input include FLIR and Wescam platforms, Leupold MK IV Spotting Scope with Kaishot Camera as well as analog video feeds.
