Bosch unleashes the Batcam

Bosch unleashes the Batcam

Published: ASIA

BORNEO: Gunung Mulu National Park occupies 544 sq-km of rainforest in the Malaysian part of Borneo. It is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, features some of the planet’s largest documented cave systems and is home to a bat observatory. In 2006, CTG Security Matrix installed the park’s first ‘Batcam’ system and more than a decade later, was engaged once again to update the setup, installing Bosch MIC PTZ cameras.

The original Batcam system was designed to capture clear video and sound from inside the caves for the monitoring and observation of wildlife as well as providing real-time surveillance for remote sites, all while surviving the heat and humidity. When called upon to refresh the system, Charles Tomas, principal and specialist operational security advisor at CTG Security Matrix, had gained some recent experience with the Bosch cameras. He specified three remotely operated vehicle cameras to be deployed inside the cave passage that is thought to be the largest in the world. These are connected by fibre and controlled remotely 3.8km away. The video feed from the Bosch MIC cameras is distributed to an all-weather television screen at the bat observatory.

As Gunung Mulu is only accessible by boat or aeroplane, all equipment was flown in, with the CTG team carting and carrying it to its final destination several kilometres away. With the installation completed the client, including scientists and management at the park operator, Borsarmulu Park Management, are reportedly impressed.
