World's first military 360 degree spherical camera technology successfully trialled by the British Army


Petards, the AIM quoted developer of advanced security and surveillance systems announces today that, further to the Final Results announcement on 18 June 2020, in partnership with the British Army's Armoured Trials and Development Unit at Bovington, its 'eyeCraft 360'  spherical video system has completed successful trials.

Developed by Petards, the eyeCraft360 is the world's first military grade 360 spherical view camera system. It dramatically improves local situational awareness for armoured vehicles and provides a welcome boost to crew safety by reducing blind spot distances. 

Serving soldiers in heavy armour, light armour and mounted infantry roles put the eyeCraft360 through its paces across a wide range of challenging terrains, light conditions and tactical exercises.

The eyeCraft 360 was developed as a simple to install, rapid and cost effective capability boost for all in-service armoured vehicles in response to the growing need for improved close-range awareness.

Raschid Abdullah, Chairman of Petards Group plc said; "We were delighted by the enthusiastic response the trials team gave to the system and look forward to it becoming an essential component in pursuit of the best available protection for the UK's military personnel and for other approved markets"
