Victim search cameras

The LEADER USAR search cameras are widely used worldwide for USAR operations following natural disasters (earthquakes, storms, etc.) or other major incidents such as an urban explosion (gas explosion, attack, etc.). This visual location tool allows the location of buried victims under rubble or in confined, inaccessible spaces. 

Leader CAM and Leader HASTY have a victim search camera:

  • An adjustable head with a 260° vision angle is mounted on a 3.5 m telescopic pole for deep or high inspections.
  • 8 levels of LED illumination offer excellent visibility, even in the darkest spaces.
  • The head of the camera is equipped with a microphone and loudspeaker to communicate with the victim once found, allowing rescue teams to calculate the required level of assistance.
  • The head can be used up to 2m underwater by using a dedicated sealed cap. 

The camera head can be disconnected to relace with an infrared (IR) search camera to provide a thermal image view of the search zone. The thermal search camera supplements and accelerates investigations to focus on hot points and contrasts in temperature to find victims or their thermal signature. 

Reels are available as an option for deep searches:

  • 90m reel with adjustable head and illumination (sealed up to 2m) and
  • 90m reel with fixed head and illumination (sealed to 90m) designed to inspect wells. A 90m extension can be connected for searches up to 180m!

The reliable LEADER victim location cameras are appreciated by rescuers and firefighters for their image quality, strength and ease of use. This USAR equipment makes it quicker to rescue victims and are an integral part of SAR GOP (General Operating Procedures).
