Ready, Set, Go…Zistos Backpack Surveillance Tower A Step Above

With our security needs increasing, especially in remote places, Zistos Corporation can help you with the right application for your remote surveillance equipment needs. Our rapidly deployable surveillance systems are self-powered and offer complete vision solutions that are wireless and easily transported.

Our newest system, The Backpack Surveillance Tower (BST) is a portable, one man battery operated, wireless network surveillance system with a pan-tilt-zoom camera that is mounted on a collapsible four-meter mast. The system facilitates surveillance of a wide area from a high angle of view. The BST deploys quickly from a backpack, which allows one individual to transport it over rough or wooded terrain. The 13 ft. tower unfolds easily from storage and can be setup by a single individual.  The pole is stabilized using guy-wires and ground spikes included in the kit. Multiple BST systems can be networked together and can be monitored from a ruggedized laptop computer available with the kit and can also interface with any standard digital device – laptop, tablet, or smartphone – with Wi-Fi capability.

BackpackSurveillanceTower_PortableNetworkSurveillanceCameraThis is an important addition to our product line, which also includes the Portable Network Surveillance Camera (PNSC). The main differences between these two systems is that the BST is more easily transported to remote areas and it has a longer pole that provides camera views from a higher angle, allowing for surveillance in locations that are not easily accessible such as wooded areas, remote border locations, and hazmat/disaster perimeters.

Both systems – the Backpack Surveillance Tower and the Portable Network Surveillance Camera – have many applications for law enforcement, the military, fire and rescue and all security personnel.  Additional applications include:

  • Tactical Surveillance Operations
  • Border Security
  • Force Protection
  • Disaster Management for first responders
  • Hazmat Situations
  • VIP Protection & Mobile Asset Security
  • Industrial Monitoring for remote or hazardous locations
