Sniper Management and Surveillance Systems
When Seeing is Surviving™ the Third Eye Eye Cam captures video in real time and makes it accessible for
- Rifle Scope Eye Cams
- Spotting Scope Eye Cams
- Night Vision Video Goggle Eye Cams
- Binocular Eye Cams
- Analog video capture for tamperproof “legal” evidence in a court of law, including watermark and time stamp
- Digital video conversion - DVR recording capability and Toughbook recording and data transfer
- IP video conversion for transmission to smart phones, iPhones, tablets and iPads
- Tactical video processing for software defined radio transmission
If you can “see”
the target through your optic, the Third Eye Eye Cam will capture the “image” in real time video. The Third Eye Eye Cam supports video capture, recording, and transmission while integrating seamlessly with current communication systems.
The Third Eye Eye Cam is the very best training tool for sharp shooters and snipers, creating video
of the trainees’ performance as visual proof of his actions; a video image that encourages the trainee to change quickly and to conform to expected performance levels.
Riflescope Eye Cams are simple to use and dependable. The Eye Cam is on when engaged and may record for 8 hours continuous. An additional power capability is provided for backup. Eye Cams have a 2-year warranty and a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee.
The Eye Cam fits over the eye piece
end of the riflescope. There is a Universal adapter to make the Eye Cam fit any size riflescope
optic, and there are special adapters for unusual applications.
- There is no change in point of aim or point of impact
- The user sees exactly what is seen
- The 30mm beamsplitter
assures full field of view
- The device is rugged, water and dust proof, and shock proof for high caliber applications
- The manufacturing, especially the machining, is elegantly presented
- This device is built to be used in difficult situations, varying climates and environments, and when deploying from helicopters and small aircraft
The Third Eye Eye Cam will become the most dependable device in your surveillance and sniper tool kit. The “spotter” uses a Spotting Scope Eye Cam.
The video signal may be recorded and simultaneously transmitted to a remote location for Command Review during the operation, and may be recorded for review after the operation is completed. There is a watermark and date stamp for tamper-proof results.
The Video Signal from the Third Eye Eye Cam is analog. The power source provided in the Eye Cam kit may have the ability to deliver digital video to a transmission system that may include software defined radios, professional military DVRs, Toughbooks and field computers. These are options for the Third Eye Eye Cam kit.
The Third Eye Eye Cam signal is compatible with most communications systems. The signal is easily converted with a Hooker Tactical device or a Harris Corp Tactical Video Processor or a Cobham Tactical Communications systems
device that may include COFDM and COFDM Mesh systems.
Third Eye Eye Cams provide full spectrum color and black and white images, Wide Dynamic Range, “sense-up” capability for automatic transition from full daylight to night time low lux
Carry your Eye Cams with your choice of recording, transmitting, and receiving system into the field, with confidence, in a Hooker Tactical custom designed military grade backpack that is combat ready, light weight and weather resistant.
- The custom backpack includes shielded access ports for power and video cables
- There is a dual color coded cable system, or you may select a single cable connector for power and video combined
- Eye Cams and accessories are small, lightweight and easily carried and used
You have a choice of silent velcro, zippers or snaps. All pouches may be removed for wearing on personal vest or for use in existing backpack systems. Backpack
is constructed to permit the pouches to be arranged for the user’s convenience.
- Third Eye Eye Cams weigh about 4 ounces
- Riflescope Eye Cams weigh about 14 ounces
- Night Vision Video Goggle Eye Cams are so light, they are not noticed when used with
flip up night vision goggles, less than an ounce
- AUDIO and VIDEO may be requested for use with Eye Cams
The pictured equipment will be present in the Backpack used by the Sniper and the back pack used by the Spotter. The Field Command Backpack may be configured to include additional transmission and receiving equipment. The Backpack equipment is designed to meet the needs of the sniper or surveillance team, and the command & control personnel.
The total system works with your existing Software Defined Harris Radios, DTC communications equipment, professional law enforcement DVRs and Toughbook laptops, and/or any other major field military communications system.
Third Eye Eye Cams are designed to integrate your communications equipment to perform successfully for delivering real time video to your team. Your team may use this video information for the purpose of making more informed decisions, for the purpose of increasing training capabilities, and for providing tamper proof information for presentation in a court of law.

Note: This schematic demonstrates equipment parts that may be used in a system. The Lithium Ion Battery Pack is not used in some countries or approved for use for some military and law enforcement. The battery packs provided equal the military specification the customer provides, managing 9-12 volt requirements. COFDM is an option for Line of Sight transmitting and receiving systems. COFDM and COFDM Mesh systems are manufactured by Avalon RF, Cobham Tactical Communications and Surveillance, and an alternative is managed by Harris Corporation using software defined radios and technology for non-line of sight transmissions. Please ask our engineers about the option that will service your customer’s needs best. Solutions are available.
Sharing real-time video may occur within a 2 or 4 man team, or the system may provide video for many teams, simultaneously, transmitting video to a field commander and/or a Main Command Post, with signal
sent to various Smart Phones and recording devices as designated by the field command.
There is a Professional Military DVR recorder in the backpack for continuous recording of the team’s surveillance activities or target resolution assignment.
The key to true real time video is the Beamsplitter.
Real time video is shared with as many receivers as required by “splitting” the Light Path and “sharing” the video image.
The video image transmitted is exactly the same image seen by the user through the optic in “real” real time; all persons sharing the image are seeing exactly what the user is “seeing”, in real time.
When you want reliable performance, the Eye Cam offers leading edge technology and rugged durability that stands above the rest.
The Eye Cam is suitable for robotics such as firearm platforms attached to armored car platforms or helicopter platforms; and is also suitable for avionics.
Pictured are the DVR, the Eye Cam “on/off” Remote Control, and the video processor.
The video processor changes the analog signal to digital to be recorded by the DVR. The digital signal is stored for playback, and immediately displayed for the Instructor to critique in real time. The small attachments pictured are stored in the pockets of the backpack. The combination of these attachments, and the Eye Cam, make it possible for successful Sniper Training, for accurate recorded and/or transmitted surveillance; accurate real time tracking of a target with confirmed identification, and recording tamper proof evidence.
The various Eye Cams, and the accessory adapters, make the Eye Cam kits the most versatile training, surveillance and evidence gathering accessory available to military and law enforcement special teams.
