PIVOT (the PIlar Versatile Observation Turret) is a surveillance system designed for rapid deployment. It comprises a high-speed turret fitted with a day-vision camera. A second mount is available for a night-vision camera or binoculars.
Used on its own, PIVOT acts as an automatic surveillance system with sweeping and recording functions. Used in conjunction with the PILARw system, PIVOT turns the turret in the correct direction and provides a real-time image of the point of origin of the threat.
With the PIVOT system, threat observation, identification and localisation capabilities are greatly enhanced. It is the ideal system for a wide variety of assignments, including infantry units, special forces, reconnaissance patrols, peacekeeping forces, security forces, surveillance of sensitive sites, etc.
