The LEADER CAM MS 2 control box is MULTI-APPLICATION. It is the central element of the LEADER CAM MS system. VERSATILE: This MULTI-APPLICATION box can be connected to 5 interchangeable USAR devices for faster and more efficient urban search and rescue-clearance operations! Change devices in just a few seconds to suit operational needs in the field! CONFIGURABLE: This box makes it possible to assemble the USAR kit you need now by selecting the most appropriate search devices! UPGRADEABLE: This MULTI-APPLICATION box allows you to add new search devices to your kit at any time! Find more information on the MULTI-APPLICATION box at the following link: MULTISEARCH Concept Expertise!

2-IN-1 FEATURES: visual location + thermal location of the victim!

This USAR kit incorporates: - a colour search camera (CAM device) for visual life searches, - a thermal imaging search camera (= TIC device) enabling hotspot detection/searching and also enabling searches in dark and/or dusty environments. The LEADER CAM MS 2 is USAR equipment using two search cameras to visually locate victims trapped in hard-to-access collapsed buildings and to talk with them to assess their condition. Using its two detachable camera heads, the LEADER CAM MS 2 kit makes it possible to switch from a thermal image to locate the victim's body quickly to a colour image to refine the search by better understanding the victim's condition and environment. Conversely, if the rescuer is using the colour camera (CAM), the thermal imaging camera (TIC) will make it possible to check/confirm whether it’s a living human being using the thermal image. The control box and graphic interface have been specifically designed for colour and thermal visual searches for buried victims!

An upgradeable life locator camera!

The MULTI-APP box makes this kit upgradeable! The MULTI-APP control box is Multi-Application and can also be connected to: - the optional RD90 search camera, waterproof to 90 m (RD90 device) for explorations at great depths. The optional RD90 colour camera, waterproof to 90 m and fitted with a 90 m cable wound on a reel enables exploration at great depth. The fixed head is fitted with LED lights and does not swivel. A 90 m extension lead allows it to be lowered down to 180 m. - seismic sensors (SEARCH devices) to detect the vibrations caused by people under wreckage, - an ultra-wide band (UWB) ground penetrating radar sensor (SCAN device) that detects movements through 50 cm of concrete.

The LEADER CAM MS 2 consists of a MULTI-APP control box and two search cameras:
- a CAM colour search camera to visually locate victims,
- and a TIC thermal imaging search camera to detect hotspots.

The CAM colour camera is used to locate victims trapped in inaccessible areas and to talk to them to assess their need for assistance and rescue (using the integrated communication system).
The camera is waterproof, swivels, is equipped with LEDs (to see victims precisely) and is attached to an ultra-light carbon fibre telescopic pole to reach inaccessible areas, whether at height or depth.

The TIC thermal imaging camera is fitted instead of the colour camera.
It provides a thermal view to make body heat visible and so speed up victim location.
It is used in various USAR use cases: reconnaissance, searches in the dark, in dusty environments or in smoke-filled areas, etc. Unlike IR LED technology that illuminates a target area using infrared light (such as a torch) LEADER uses an infrared sensor to detect the heat from objects between 0°C and 120°C. A victim will therefore be visible even if covered with dust or a blanket or behind foliage.

The navigation interface of this device has been designed to prioritise the image. The image is displayed on the whole screen and the pictograms used on the navigation interface are very discreet, enabling rescuers to understand the situation as quickly as possible!
The LEADER CAM MS 2 kit makes it very simple to switch from a thermal image to a colour image and back again just by connecting and disconnecting the camera heads.

The two search camera heads can be attached alternately on an ultra-light carbon fibre telescopic pole for great manoeuvrability in the field. Carbon fibre was an obvious choice for our telescopic pole. It's ultra-light and so can be manoeuvred easily by just one rescuer! However, it is possible to separate the control box from the pole to enable two rescuers to handle the tool (one stays focused on the screen, the other handles the pole).

It is also possible to conduct visual searches in wells (optional 90 m cable reels are used for these operations) or under water down to a depth of 180 m (using the RD90 device). Contact us for more information.

This kit can be upgraded at a later date by adding:

- the camera head waterproof to 90 m (RD90 device),
- and/or the seismic detection/listening equipment function with seismic sensors (SEARCH devices),
- and/or the movement detection function with UWB ground penetrating search radar (SCAN device).

The LEADER CAM MS 2 search camera forms part of the USAR equipment recommended by INSARAG.

This camera can also be used as an inspection camera for maintenance, safety departments, etc.
