3-IN-1 FEATURES: UWB movement detection + seismic detection + visual victim location!

This USAR comprises: - 1 Ultra-Wide Band UWB radar scanner (SCAN) to detect and locate movements through debris, - 3 wireless seismic sensors (SEARCH) to detect vibrations caused by a buried person (knocks, shouts, scratching, etc.), - 1 colour victim location camera (CAM) used in visual searching for people buried under wreckage, The LEADER MULTISEARCH 8 is USAR victim location equipment fitted with a MULTI-APP box enabling all LEADER search devices to be combined! The SCAN radar device is Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR). UWB (Ultra-Wide Band) technology consists of sending electromagnetic waves through debris to detect variations in movements under wreckage. In this way it probes the surface of rubble to search for movements of buried victims up to a distance of 30 m unobstructed. It detects movements through 50 cm of concrete, but also through other materials such as wood, roof tiles, glass, bricks, plastics and more. The 3 wireless seismic sensors (SEARCH) use seismic technology. In other words, they detect the vibrations caused by people trapped under rubble! With an unobstructed range of 100 m, they enable the area to be triangulated quickly to detect the presence of living victims. UWB technology and seismic technology are fully complementary! Indeed, the two technologies both confirm the presence of victims. In addition, depending on field constraints, sometimes one will be better suited and sometimes the other. The colour search camera (CAM) is used to conduct visual searches for victims buried under wreckage and to communicate with them to assess their need for assistance. The MULTI-APPLICATION box makes it possible to switch very easily and quickly from one device to another.

An upgradeable search device!

The MULTI-APP box makes this kit upgradeable! It is now possible to combine movement detection (UWB radar sensor = SCAN device), seismic detection (listening equipment fitted with 3 seismic sensors = SEARCH device) and visual location using the colour search camera (= CAM device) enabling visual location of buried victims. However, it is possible to upgrade this kit at a later date by adding: - the thermal imaging camera head (TIC device), - the camera head waterproof to 90 m (RD90 device).

Quick and easy movement in the field using operational backpacks

Stored in 2 backpacks, themselves placed in 2 rigid waterproof cases, the LEADER MULTISEARCH MS 6 kit is protected from shocks, rain and dust, and so can be transported easily and quickly over the ground. The backpacks make it possible to move victim location devices to the disaster area.
Product features

The LEADER MULTISEARCH 6 is a victim location device equipped with a MULTI-APP control box designed for specialised urban search and rescue-clearance teams.

- UWB radar movement detector (SCAN): detects movements of victims under wreckage,
- seismic sensors (SEARCH): detect the vibrations generated by people under wreckage (shouts, scratching, knocks, etc.),
- a colour search camera (CAM): visually locates victims,
- and an optional camera, waterproof to 90 m (RD90), can also be connected: for explorations at great depths.

The SCAN UWB ground penetrating radar sensor uses Ultra Wide Band (UWB) technology. This scans the surface of debris looking for movements of living victims (conscious or unconscious) up to 30 m unobstructed and indicates the precise depth at which the victim is located.
Ultra-sensitive and precise, UWB technology makes it possible to detect:
- strong movements (e.g. arm movements) up to 30 m unobstructed
- and weak movements (e.g. breathing movements) up to 10 m unobstructed.
It makes it possible to detect movements through 50 cm of concrete, but also through wood, roof tiles, bricks, glass, plastics and more. (However, note that electromagnetic waves cannot pass through metal surfaces and water).
The radar device is stored in a waterproof, shockproof, compact and lightweight case to facilitate search operations in hard-to-reach confined spaces. It has a Lithium-Ion battery with 4 hours running time.
To aid use in the field, it can operate by WiFi (alternative if interference: a USB cable can be connected).
The SCAN radar 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.

SEARCH seismic sensors, also called 'seismic listening equipment', are ultra-sensitive, offering unrivalled sound quality to search and rescue specialists. The LEADER MULTISEARCH 8 has 3 wireless seismic sensors with an unobstructed range of 100 m. The wireless seismic sensors are very simple to use compared with cabled sensors (no cables to manage).
Lightweight and compact, they can be stored easily in a pocket. They are also fitted with a flexible aerial for optimum connectivity, a carrying strap making them easier to position and carry, and an LED button to indicate connection to the box from a distance.

The CAM colour camera is used to visually locate victims trapped in confined spaces and to talk to them to assess their need for assistance using the integrated communication system.
It is waterproof, swivels and is equipped with LED lights to identify victims in the dark. Attached to an ultra-light carbon fibre telescopic pole, it can reach inaccessible areas up to 2.4 m away once extended (4 m option available).

The MULTI-APP control box makes this USAR kit upgradeable!
This box can also be connected to:
- the thermal imaging search camera (TIC device) to view hotspots,
- the optional RD90 search camera, waterproof to 90 m (RD90 device), for exploration 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.
