Smile for the Grenade! "Camera Go Bang!"

Presented at DEF CON 19 (2011), Aug. 6, 2011, 3 p.m. (50 minutes)

Cameras are hugely important to urban and suburban battlefields. Reconnaissance is a must-have for commanders, and a force multiplier for actual combat units. A combat-deployable camera system is being developed or used by nearly every military-industrial manufacturer and government agency, ranging from Throwable Camera Balls to Grenade-style launched cameras. But they're expensive and inaccessible to civilians. Would it be possible to build a combat-deployable camera system that would fulfill the mandates of a tactical combat team, feed information to a strategic command center, and force-multiply "on the cheap"?
