Perfect for law enforcement, homeland security and public safety surveillance, the systems are integrated in 1520 Protector™ Cases which act as a portable watertight, crush-proof chassis.

"We used Pelican Protector Cases to house our progressive portable technology because they are renowned for their durability," said Robert Bauer, Director of Sales and Marketing for BMS. "It's important to keep life saving equipment safe and protected so it will function when it’s needed and Pelican Protector Cases deliver that in spades."

Additional standard features include rechargeable batteries and charger, an AC adapter with cigarette lighter power capabilities for extended operation, an on-screen power status bar, and external AV jacks for use with video recording devices.
