There are very few camera systems that are wireless and will transmit whilst under water.
Most mini systems are 2.4ghz so you need to have the antenna above water to operate it. Our 'Up-periscope' system employs a mini 2.4 ghz camera and we have adapted the antenna so it runs upwards like a periscope.
The camera is underwater in its special water tight container, and its antenna must be 1" above the water to transmit. The submarine could be operating at periscope depth and therefore the camera would be submerged. If you use our 'virtual goggles' you'll be operating as if you were looking through the submarines periscope. It's very realistic.

Has anyone tried this "Up-Periscope" set up? If so, how did it work? How is the resolution of the goggles?

Thanks

I have not tried it out but one can make it from available components and customize the camara like higher resolution and infrared capabilities and wider angle excetra ,now available on the net .There is a wireless goggles cald the Shark it is entirely wireless and is used in choppers and aircraft and is very high qualty.

Do you know of any goggles that are made to cover one eye only? Or I be able to disassemble these goggles to only have one eye piece? I need to have just one eye piece and was looking for a solution.

Thanks

Any goggle can be modified for one eye piece ,one might have to make a frame for that one eye,but why do you need one that way?

I am a student in engineering and working on a project to help paralyzed hunters to be able to hunt using a joystick and camera system. We need to have avideo system that only covers one eye for safety reasons. Any suggestions for this particular application? Camera will be attached to a gun scope then the user will see through the scope using the goggles.

Yea, this is what we are looking into. The price is quite a bit more than submarine type goggles though, so we thought we would weigh out the option.
