The MERC-V is a small, lightweight mobile video surveillance trailer that can be deployed anywhere in the world to provide remote video monitoring and storage. The MERC-V can be used for construction site security, public event security, remote monitoring applications, traffic monitoring and analysis, disaster relief monitoring, facial recognition applications, license plate recognition, railway security and monitoring, and any other application where video surveillance is required. The MERC-V is a 15-foot single axle bumper pull trailer that weighs less than 2,500 pounds and can be towed by most standard vehicles.
The MERC-V can be powered by multiple power sources; 15 amp shore power connection, solar panels, internal battery bank, and/or a diesel generator. A 15-30 foot mast with multiple antenna and camera mounting arms allows for equipment to be quickly elevated from the trailer. A climate controlled locking equipment cabinet provides secure electronics rack space and a solar battery enclosure. Heavy duty integrated hydraulic jacks allow the trailer to be leveled when deployed. Network connectivity is provided by LTE networks including FirstNet Band 14 and by an optional VSAT satellite in areas where the cellular network is not available. Local DVR recording equipment can be rack mounted or streamed across the selected network.
For extended deployments, CCS has developed a custom energy management system that combines solar power connectivity with a mobile generator. The solar panels will charge a bank of solar batteries that will be used as the primary power source for all on board electronics. During a time period when there may not be enough sunlight to keep these batteries charged (rainy weather, daylight savings time, etc..) an onboard computer will automatically start the generator to recharge the batteries until they reach an acceptable level. Once the batteries are recharged, the computer will turn off the generator to conserve fuel until the next time it is needed. This allows the customer to maximize their deployment times without having to bring the trailer back in for refueling or charging.
This MERC package combined with the shelter provides us a response package that can be fully deployed in less than 30 minutes anywhere we need it!
The MERC Lite satellite trailer worked perfectly during our 3 day response. The generator provided continuous power allowing us to stay in constant contact with the responding Guardsmen.
The MERC Lite satellite trailers worked great during our support of the relief efforts providing mobile communications, a climate controlled shelter, and lighting for night time operations.
