The SKM kit is a portable visual search kit for use by law enforcement and customs officers, security staff and bomb technicians. It was developed in conjunction with UK police and military counter-terrorist search team personnel.
The kit includes a side-viewing endoscope for searching inaccessible areas (e.g. wall cavities, crawl spaces, ventilation ducts, behind dashboards) through a gap of 10mm (0.4in) diameter. A 10W halogen lamp in the tip of the endoscope provides bright illumination and enables inspections to be made over distances of up to 13m (5ft). Power for the endoscope is supplied from a secondary power socket in the fluorescent handlamp included with the kit.
Search mirror equipment includes a long telescopic arm (CEM) that extends to 1500mm (59in) for inspecting inaccessible areas in buildings. vessels and vehicles, and a short fixed length model (UCIWT) which is ideal for room searches. Both can be fitted with the range of interchangeable mirrors supplied.
The kit also contains a fluorescent handlamp to provide a wide area working light and two right angle flashlights with belt clips.
A selection of miniature mirrors and light probes and illuminated magnifiers are included to assist in the internal inspection of suspect packages and containers with minimal disturbance. Mirror sizes range from 4.5 to 64mm (0.18 to 2.5in) in diameter.
The kit is supplied in a robust protective foam-lined carrying case complete with batteries and replacement lamps.Other Details:
