The MFR-DB-SDR incorporates both optical and thermal cameras in an environmentally sealed rugged PTZ unit.

It incorporates the DTC Software Definable Radio which has a configurable transmission method and encryption standard. 

Whilst Mesh transmission method is the first choice, COFDM point to point transmission is also supported as a system option, which operates along side a UHF telemetry module for system control.

The build is modular such that it can configured to include an optional power amplifier to increase system range and the option to add a battery power source. 

It incorporates a Sony HD camera with a 30x optical zoom lens and a 63.7° wide angle of view. 

The Flir thermal camera incorporates radiometric technology which delivers high precision temperature monitoring. It supports an 8x digital zoom and spot metering to further optimise the exposure control for each particular scenario.

The transmitted video output can be user switched between either camera as and when required. The zoom is synchronised between the two cameras, up to the maximum FOV capability of the thermal camera. This allows convenient switching between the two camera views.

The pan and tilt axes have absolute position feedback, which allows the camera to self correct its actual position if external forces act upon it. It also supports user presets that can be saved allowing PTZ framing and camera racking profiles to be easily recalled.

The pan and tilt drive trains reduce noise to a minimum with pan speeds up to 100º per second. The outer casing is machined from aluminium, all external mating surfaces are gasket sealed to maintain the IP67 environmental rating.
