Rescue Radar


Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) Rescue Radar from Sensors & Software
When disaster strikes, the first hours are critical to save the lives of buried victims.
Immediately following a disaster, emergency personnel rush to the scene to rescue survivors from the rubble. Search and Rescue teams must quickly assess the situation and decide where to focus their resources. These initial decisions dictate the success of the rescue effort.
Rescue Radar is designed for rapid deployment by Search & Rescue teams to quickly find survivors trapped beneath the surface. Rescue Radar uses ground penetrating radar (GPR) signals to detect the movement of a victim below the surface – body movements – even movements associated with breathing.
Locate unconscious and conscious victims Effective in high noise and high wind environments Increase certainty – complements the use of canine and seismic rescue systems Minimal training required Multi-language, intuitive graphical user interface.

Rescue Radar has two different modes that can be toggled with a single press of a button

Basic ModeAllows first responders with minimal or no training to locate trapped victims. The interface shows a life status symbol on a scale to indicate the distance from Rescue Radar to the victim.

Advanced ModeAllows operators to locate movement and monitor over a period of time to reduce false alarms. The depth scale is shown on the left side of the screen and the number of cycles on the top Consistent life status symbols over a number of cycles build confidence for first responders that a victim is still alive; either conscious and moving or unconscious and breathing.

Locate victims Save lives
1 Arriving at the scene, operators open the Rescue Radar case and remove the tablet computer.
2 The Rescue Radar system is placed in the disaster zone and the operator stands back and starts the system.
3 Rescue Radar continuously sends GPR signals into the subsurface to detect movement. In seconds, the tablet computer displays the distance from the system to a potential victim under the rubble.
