This new R/5 periscope is similar to the R/4 except the over all size has been reduced to give more clearance and room in the surveillance van. The mail advantage to the R/5 is that is uses slip rings so that no cables will wind up in remote operations.
The next advantage is the periscope doesn’t need to be raised all the way to get a great picture. Just raise it just enough to get your picture and view away. The new mirrors are of the highest quality. Flat within a 1/4 of a wave length. Thus, reducing distortion when zooming in on the target.
The new hand controller incorporates a joy stick for ease of operation.
The camera mount will handle our new 15x3
