The Site Management Kit (SMK) is based on a system of rugged, portable wireless cameras feeding into a powerful wireless LAN which covers a whole demining operation area up to a radius of 20Km.
The system consists of 3 main module types: SMK BASE, SiteEye camera/mic modules, and SiteKiosk boxes for system interaction and communications. The SMK BASE is a stationary, self contained, central control station containing the wireless LAN hub, server PC, satellite uplink, local user controls, and UPS power system.
Several SiteEye modules (cameras with sound) are wireless, battery driven, rugged and portable. Powerful easy to exchange batteries allow 24 hours of operation on various locations with the option of solar power where appropriate. The SiteKiosk boxes are a payphone sized kiosk with displays, cameras, keyboards, speakers and microphones which facilitates various modes of monitoring, recording and communicating internal to the network and externally via the satellite link to outside sites.
The modules are packaged in MIL specification enclosures and feature a stacking type assembly for surviving the extreme conditions found in field operations. Various Add-ons complete the System: Tripods, Adapters, lenses with different focal length, a RC-Camera Carrier, which can be driven in uncleared area etc. All elements of the system are push-button and easy to handle.
