The Cerberus Digital Canine Transmission system is a Colchester-based creation that helps canine handlers get a better sense of what visual cues their dogs are picking up.

Dogs are excellent workers and offer a wide variety of skills, but they can't really communicate what they see. The Cerberus system tackles this program by allowing the handler to see exactly what their dog sees.

The system consists of a special harness that holds a small camera arm and a transceiver that sits snug against the dog's spine. The transmitter sends a secure, encrypted video signal to the handler's high-resolution portable receiver, which allows the handler to get a good visual gauge.

Unsurprisingly, this system is targeted towards the military and defense markets, where it could be used to increase the efficiency and efficacy of canine units.
