The NIMBUS covert video system allows your team to keep up with the times. Anywhere or anytime that smoking is acceptable, the NIMBUS can be introduced, and along with it comes covert HD video recording and audio recording. 

The NIMBUS is one-hundred percent, fully functional and is designed to allow normal vape operation while keeping the camera’s field of view unhindered.  For long term ops, the NIMBUS batteries are be easily swapped and no tools are required to access the battery compartment.  Should the compartment need to be accessed in front of targets, internal covert video equipment is concealed with dielectric potting material. 

Operation of the NIMBUS camera is very simple, a single button is used to both power the camera and start/stop recording.  With both powering on and recording, the NIMBUS provides unique vibration signatures.  For complete UC/CI confidence before a given deployment, live video from the NIMBUS can be securely monitored via a smartphone or tablet.  During an op, should the camera battery get too low…the NIMBUS will provide a 5 minute warning vibration.  When ready, the UC/CI can field swap the standard 18650 battery and continue the operation.   Camera battery run time is up to 6.2 hours, and the vape battery provides an average of 100 to 130 puffs.

After operations have been completed, audio/video evidence can be retrieved via a secure WiFi link, or by removal of the mSD card.  All files are non-proprietary…requiring no special software.
