CCTV just means closed circuit tv. It broadcasts nothing, and is connected with a cable. advantages over fibre optics? cheaper.

Sorry..

Yeah, i didn't put it clearly.
But my idea was something like how a periscope in a submarine works.
So you can screw it on your normal scope so you can view around corners, the principal works with mirrors reflecting.

How about this..

I just googl'd around and found exactly what i was thinking about:
http://home.att.net/~mikel/chards/scope-3.jpg

Although this isn't what i meant, it looks like how i meant it..
How about this, you could attach it to your gunscope and look around corners without exposing yourself..
I think it would be pretty cool..

huh? I have no idea what you are talking about.

What advantages would a CCTV setup have over a fibre optic system other than not having an optic cable between the weapon and the eyepiece? Hope its water and dirt proof as well as being resilient to hard knocks, the batteries ought to last a long time. Could I have a link to the CCTV system for more info?

Depending on the role of the weapon.. there are good and bad points about strapping a cam-corder to a glock.

The americans have a concept that similar to what you are talking about in their landwarrior system, I think. The scope on the top uses some kind of cctv camera that transmits to the soldier's eyepiece.

Gun that fires around corners

They had a story about this one on the national news in Sweden a few days ago. Would it make a worthy addition to the game?

Woulden't a better system be just to have a normal weapon with a scope, and have a special attachment that would screw onto the eyepiece of the scope?

The attachment would be an optical cable focus piece with an optical cable running from it that would screw down onto the eye piece of the weapon scope, and the optical cable from the focus piece would be about three foot long and would end in a monocle that would be attached to the eye of the person using the weapon, and would be either held in place similar to a pirates eye patch or held in place by a sunglasses type frame.

That way a soldier could sight down the scope while firing the weapon from the hip, or while crouching behind a wall and holding his weapon above him over the wall. I dont know the finer details of getting an obtical cable link between the weapon scope and a human eye and have it well focused but I know with the right knowledge and some ingenuity it can be done.

The whole thing, Focus piece, cable and monocle would be small, light and take seconds to attach and remove due to the simple screw on action.

Another advantage would be that any scope capable weapon could have this upgrade attached to it, along with the fact that the soldiers eye would always be in near perfect alignment with the scope's sighting and possible target, even when jerking the weapon around (which could be disorienting at first).

A nice Low-Tech shoot round corners system which is also good for normal use and without need of a special custom built from scratch weapon, through the eyepice of the scope may need to be replaced to acomodate the screw on Cable Focus piece.

The system could work with any type of scope, including Infra red and light amplification, anything that has a visual feed the human eye can understand.
Even better is that it doesn't need batteries.



Ideas, suggestions anyone?

Ah, cool. That makes more sense. Baby takes a bit to get adjusted to the temperature outside. Never did ask the pin heads how it worked, had too much fun playing with it.

Haha, I love military tech. They come up with such inventive things that do really cool stuff. They also develop such low tech solutions to high tech problems.

One cool think I would like to see if some sort of good infared system. AvP did a good job, not really reallistic but it was cool how it worked for game balance.

I love playing with the infared systems the military has. They are slow sometimes but the detail is amazing. 'Course I'm talking about an aircraft installed system. Which I will just say weighs more than you want to carry. But you would swear you were using night vision. You can see detail in pavement. I don't think is operates on brightness=heat. Since things that are have fairly little difference in heat, like pavement, can show a variety of variation, while much warmer objects, like engines many 100x degrees, are brighter you can still see detail in them too. It seems to assign brightness in a smart way so that on the same screen, cold things just a fraction of a degree in variance still show the same detail as very hot objects with great ranges in temperature between nearby features. Really cool stuff.

But I have no idea how small the technology is now.

Are you talking about the FLIR (Forward looking Infrared) System? The inherent problem with Infrared visual equipment is that its not very detailed. This is because A)Heat spreads out quickly B) the wavelength dosent allow for the waves to be focused. There isnt a way to make a lense to focus Infrared light. So to get round this the military took a simple aproach of combining 2 technologies that they were already using. They combined the IR equipment with NV and created FLIR. The details you see with that system is not the IR but the NV system overlaying the IR.
