Petards to launch eyeCraft360 at DSEI

Posted 7 June 2019 · Add Comment

Guildford-based Petards have announced that they will be launching ‘eyeCraft360’ at DSEI 2019, at the ExCel in London, 10th-13th September.


EyeCraft360 is world’s first military grade 360 spherical view camera system which dramatically improves local situational awareness for armoured vehicles without risking the safety of the crew.

Defence experts from around the world will be among the first to try out this brand new product, which instantly gives complete coverage around any vehicle including directly above it and below.

Developed in response to the growing need for improved close‐range awareness, especially in the urban environment, eyeCraft360 provides a simple, rapid and cost effective capability boost for inservice armoured vehicles. It also helps to reduce accidents and damage when manoeuvring.

The system comprises a hull‐mountable omnidirectional camera, a single rugged screen and an armoured cable to join them together. Thanks to the simplicity of the design, it is ready for use straight out of the box. Expensive and time‐consuming integration is not required. It avoids the need for any mechanical moving parts by digitally stitching and stabilising its inputs to give a seamless full 360 view at all times.

Scott Patterson, Defence Director at Petards said: "We are very excited to be able to bring together our defence expertise and our camera know‐how to create an innovative product which will make a real difference in keeping vehicle crews safe. The reaction from serving and veteran soldiers who have seen it so far has been incredibly positive."

Petards are specialist providers of data driven security, surveillance and communication technology, developing defence solutions that help deliver smart technologies for a range of companies and organisations across the world, including Bombardier, Siemens, Stadler, Hitachi, BAE Systems, Leonardo and the UK's Ministry of Defence.
