FieldCam: a revolutionary helmet-mounted smart camera for military operations

Source: Endurance and Opertion Technology (EOT)

FieldCam is a groundbreaking helmet-mounted smart camera system developed by Norwegian company Endurance and Operations Technology (EOT). Led by the entrepreneur Jo Jørgen Stordal, a former Afghanistan soldier and officer, the FieldCam system enables two-way video and audio communication between military personnel in the field and technical experts located elsewhere.




This helmet camera operates using WIFI, mobile through civilian 4G/5G, private 5G for defense, or satellite communication. With the FieldCam system encrypted frontend for laptops, pcs, tablets, any technical experts can troubleshoot and guide forces on the ground, even if the user is not familiar with the equipment they are working on. The helmet-mounted camera, equipped with a small screen, allows soldiers to receive real-time instructions through graphics, video and audio. The experts see what the soldier sees and do, then guide them step-by-step, and send graphics to the small screen, allowing them to solve problems that extend far beyond the soldier’s expertise.

FieldCam is not limited to repairing vehicles but can also be used for training, first aid, and as a management tool. It provides a way for technical experts to transfer knowledge directly to soldiers on the ground, without deploying NATO personnel to the field. This means that experts can be located in Norway, Poland, Germany, and still provide guidance and instructions to soldiers in Ukraine, for example.




As for Ukraine, assistance mainly stops when the military hardware is handed over. FieldCam allows the support team to be located anywhere else outside Ukraine to conduct troubleshooting by seeing the same thing as the user. Being able to skip any language barriers support teams will use visual guidance, showing step-by-step actions that should be taken to repair the system. This is a very effective way to transfer knowledge directly to the Ukrainian forces, ensuring that the equipment we have donated is kept operational.

For the Ukraine battlefield, as any other, the deployment of military hardware themselves are crucial, but it is the endurance and the maintenance of the weapons that are most important.

The system is relatively inexpensive, easy to operate, and removes any language barriers. As part of the EOT team, former German Special Forces soldier David Faller sees endless possibilities with the FieldCam system. He believes it could have a wide range of applications that could also be transferred to other emergency services, such as police, fire service, or ambulance services. The FieldCam system can become an invaluable tool for the armed forces and NATO during training and as direct support in combat operations.

Decision-makers in the operations center can get a better overview of the situation on the ground and valuable situational awareness in real-time. In conclusion, the FieldCam system is a revolutionary technology that could change the way military operations are carried out, providing soldiers with the technical support they need in even the most challenging situations, and making it a valuable tool for saving lives and supporting operations.

 

EOT is now open for units and professionals who wish to test the FieldCam system and witness its capabilities firsthand. Organizations interested in testing FieldCam can apply by visiting www.fieldcam.no.
