In the US, it’s true that crime rates have been on a downward trend since the early 1990s. In fact, they have fallen by 54% between 1993 and 2018!
As you’d expect, though, there’s still much work to be done in the fight against crime. One way you can step up your game is to utilize the modern technology that’s available to you.
Are you wondering how to get the best mobile surveillance in these uncertain times? Then you’re in the right place. We’ll show you why The RATT is exactly what you need.
What Is The RATT?
“RATT” stands for “Rapid All-Terrain Tower,” formerly known as the Mobile Video Surveillance (MVS) system. This is our portable tower that uses telescopic masts so you can deploy many different PTZ cameras or other devices you want.
All you have to do is purchase The RATT and attach it to any standard Class III 2×2″ hitch receiver you have on your vehicle. This automatically transforms it into a mobile surveillance vehicle that can be sent anywhere you wish to keep a watchful eye on.
What Are the Benefits of Using The RATT for Mobile Surveillance?
Now that you know what The RATT is, what are the benefits of using this type of mobile surveillance? What makes it the best equipment around? Read on to find out.
No Specialized Training Required
When you purchase any equipment, there’s the concern that your employees will need to be trained on how to use it properly. This can take up precious time and there’s also the worry that not everyone is taught correctly.
What’s great is The RATT is so easy to use, no specialized training or licensing is required. All a person needs to do is attach and release it from the hitch receiver. With drones or trailers, you’ll need specialized training and experienced personnel to operate these things.
You also only need 1 person to set it up. This means that if you’re on a solo mission, you can still use The RATT on your own, without the assistance of others.
It’s Quick to Deploy
Depending on the crime, one happens every 5.7 seconds to every 1.7 minutes. A tranquil moment can quickly become disturbed, and you never know when that’ll happen.
Because of that, you’ll want to have a quick way of deploying your surveillance equipment. After all, it’ll be of no use to you if you need to get mobilized and it takes forever to get set up.
The major advantage of using The RATT is that it can be connected to a hitch receiver in under 2 minutes and fully deployed in under 10 minutes. This means you can deploy your device 30+ feet in the air in just a matter of minutes.
Considering that regular trailer pole cameras take over 20 minutes to deploy, this shaves off a significant amount of time and can make all the difference in what you catch.
You Can Use The RATT Anytime You Wish
You’ll definitely get the high-ground advantage when you choose to use The RATT. It can be used on all sorts of terrain and during the day or night.
The best thing of all is that The RATT is operable in any weather condition (under 40mph winds unguyed). This means that you can just about use it 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This enables you to always have the advantage in any situation, considering The RATT is also very quick to deploy.
There’s also versatility to the payload for The RATT. You can put virtually anything you want on top, as long as it’s under 49 pounds. We can even custom-fabricate mounts so whatever you want to use can be secured onto The RATT.
It Allows for Extended Usage if Needed
The reality is, when you use drone surveillance, it can only be used for a short period of time, even if you have the best in the industry. Even if you have multiple battery packs, you’ll have to keep flying the drone back and forth to change it out. This entire process is very time-consuming and will cause you to have an unnecessarily high amount of downtime.
With The RATT, you can hunker down and perform surveillance on as long as your mission requires. You won’t have to worry about downtime at all since the telescoping tower will operate for as long as you need it to and you can even lock down each section of the mast for an extended duration.
The operator also stays safe and sound inside, so there’s better security as well.
It Requires Very Little Maintenance
In addition to being quick to deploy, The RATT also requires very little maintenance. All you need to do is lubricate the tower sections once a year and keep it clean by wiping it down.
With a trailer, you’d have to perform regular maintenance for the tires, battery, and generator. There are no batteries on The RATT, so you don’t have to worry about it dying on you when you need it the most. It also doesn’t need software updates, so you won’t have pesky obstacles hindering your RATT usage in crucial times.
