www.officer.com January 2016 Law Enforcement Technology 11 "The guys back at headquarters can be giving eyes on the guys in the stack." It can also be shared easily with other agencies involved in a scene. In 2013, Cafarelli and his team joined the massive man-hunt for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, one of two brothers involved in the Boston Marathon bombing. Thousands of officers from a variety of agencies participated. After search- ing a 20-block area in Watertown (Mass.), officers pin-pointed Tsarnaev hiding in a boat located in a backyard. Officers used another product that was thrown into the boat and took pictures. Unfortunately, the only ones that could see the images were the state helicopter and those on the state system. "When you use an app," says Cafarelli, "we could have used the image and given it to everyone." Every officer would be issued the password and they would be able to see what the Explorer sees regardless of the name on their shoulder patch. Cafarelli's excited about the informa- tion sharing capability of the Explorer. "The photo imagery is in real time with multiple jurisdictions," he says. "This expounds on the capability being able to share that information. You can't put a price on that." Yet, every product has a price Cost is one of the biggest factors that makes Explorer unique and desirable. "We were looking for something that would be available and low cost," says Aguilar. He wanted departments to be able to have lots of them. "It's acces- sible because it's a tenth of what a robot costs. Hopefully we can get it into more officers' hands and keep people safer." The base unit with white light is $1,495 and the new infra-red model is $2,495. Forget everything you've seen, heard or thought you knew about bullpups. Just pull the trigger on our new RDB .
