LAST UPDATES: NOVEMBER 17, 2006:  Page new layout

 

 

The following information has been taken from diverse sources, but mostly comes from "Century 21" No.15, Winter 1993, a Special Captain Scarlet issue, with a Complete Spectrum Encyclopaedia. 

Thanks to  "DJU" and to Chris Dale who have sent me these  beautiful pictures to help me illustrate this section!

 

 

 

SPECTRUM EQUIPMENT:

 

VARIOUS  EQUIPMENT:

 

 

PERSONAL RECEIVERS 

(PERSONAL COMMUNICATORS)

 

Two models exist of such portative radio emitter exist within the Spectrum organisation.  The first  is  used by an agent, while undercover, or away during furlough and not wearing his uniform.  Like Captain Scarlet (right), during an undercover mission in "Model Spy".

 

 

The second model appears to be simply black sunglasses, but have miniature transceivers built in, which override the use of cap microphones if caps are also worn.  For example, when Captain Magenta was wearing his receivers but his cap mike was never used when talking to Captain Ochre, in "The Heart of New York".  Can also be used when undercover, so the wearer can communicate with another agent and receive orders and/or instructions without anybody else in his company noticing it.

 

 

 

 

C.38 MYSTERON DETECTORS


These detectors, like large, red, "Polaroid cameras" produce X-Ray photographs of normal humans, but normal photographs of X-Ray impervious Mysteron agents (and of Captain Scarlet).  The proceed was discovered during the episode "Operation Time", when Mysteron agent Doctor Magnus put his hand under an X-Ray machine.  They also work in total darkness.  (One would wonder HOW Spectrum never found that fact out before, since Captain Scarlet has been quite often in sickbay since his Mysteronisation.  C.B.)

 

 

 

AIR SAMPLING DEVICE

 

This hand-held device is able to sense, measure, analyse, compare and identify air samples for ambient radioactivity, gravity fluctuations, element toxicity, pressure changes, and gas emissions.  As seen in episode 5, "Avalanche".
