LEADER SCAN MS 1:
Ground penetrating UWB radar
MULTI-APPLICATION control box: Versatile, configurable and upgradeable!
Main function: Detection (UWB) of the victim's movements!
An upgradeable victim movement detector!
Backpacks to facilitate field movements
The LEADER SCAN MS 1 combines a MULTI-APP control box with an ultra wide band radar sensor (SCAN device) to detect the movements made by people under the wreckage: scratching, knocks, simple chest movements due to breathing of an unconscious victim, etc.
AN ULTRA-SENSITIVE UWB RADAR MOVEMENT DETECTOR
The SCAN ground penetrating radar features Ultra Wide Band (UWB) technology that scans the surface of the rubble to search for the movements of conscious or unconscious victims up to 30 m unobstructed.
The ultra-sensitive sensors detect even the smallest movements and indicate the precise depth at which the victim is located.
UWB technology is used to detect strong movements within 1 m (e.g. arm movements) up to 30 m unobstructed and weak movements (e.g. breathing) up to 10 m unobstructed.
The frequency of movements is also analysed to determine whether or not it is a human life.
It sends electromagnetic waves through materials to detect variations in movements.
It detects movements through 50 cm of concrete, wood, roof tiles, glass, bricks, plastics and more. (However, note that electromagnetic waves cannot pass through metal surfaces or water).
A SENSOR DESIGNED FOR THE FIELD
The radar aerial and associated electronics of this rescue equipment are housed in a small waterproof and shockproof case.
The sensor is lightweight and compact to make it easier to handle and search in small spaces. It has a Lithium-Ion battery giving it 4 hours running time.
2 TYPES OF CONNECTION TO THE BOX
It is WiFi-connected with a range of 30 m, making it easier to handle in the field (alternatively, a cable can be connected).
TWO SEARCH MODES
The SCAN device has 2 search modes:
- Automatic: Automatic analysis of several predefined areas to detect up to 7 living people.
- Manual: Manual pre-determined analysis with search area selection.
The LEADER SCAN MS 1 victim detector forms part of USAR electronic devices recommended by INSARAG.
