The Check-6® system contains long-wave infrared sensors molded into the housings

“The ability to see outside the vehicle provides an important increase in situational awareness and safety for the occupants of vehicles, who frequently travel in very dangerous territory,” said Jamie Adair, program manager for BAE Systems in Austin, Texas. “These cameras improve safety and mission effectiveness, and above all, can save lives.”

The BAE Systems Check-6® system features infrared camera systems installed inside the vehicles’ taillight housings. The system provides visibility in daylight, darkness, and adverse weather.
