Human detection system optimises rescue and surveillance: X3 Finder is now available in South Africa
Fremtac Fire and Rescue cc has been awarded the exclusive distribution rights for South Africa for the SpecOps Group Inc. the manufacturer of the X3 Finder for first responders, fire fighters, law enforcement and military applications.
X3 Finder (Finding Individuals for Disaster and Emergency Response) was originally developed at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory and SpecOps Group Inc to help rescue crews find survivors quickly in a major disaster, where seconds make the critical difference between life and death. The X3 Finder is a portable human heartbeat and respiration detection system that uses radar to identify signs of life beneath rubble and debris, through walls and underground. Now first responders can find living human victims through piles of rubble at the click of a button. Finder allows first responders to bypass the physical search phase and to focus on the rescue portion of the mission providing life-saving medical attention only precisely where it’s needed. Finder can also be mounted and configured to enable see-through-wall surveillance, allowing users to detect individuals within buildings, caves and tunnels.
X3 Finder uses a low power radio signal to detect the motion signature of human heartbeats and respiration. After a disaster, there is a limited window of time to save trapped and injured survivors. Finder makes the process more efficient by removing the guess-work out of search efforts, providing rescuers with precise detection of all living victims at a disaster site.
“Finder is portable, easy and safe to use and can be operated by a single person. With the push of a button the X3 Finder detects heartbeat and respiration within one minute. That’s why the X3 Finder has become the gold standard in search and rescue technology providing first responders, fire fighters, military and law enforcement with the capability to save many lives quickly,” said Adrian Garulay, co-founder, president and CEO of SpecOps Group Inc.
The X3 Finder manufactured by SpecOps Group Inc is the new standard for Search and Rescue.
In addition to the portable unit, the X3 FINDER’s see-through-wall heartbeat detection system can be configured and mounted on robots, drones and SWAT vehicles to enable covert human surveillance and law enforcement missions. Finder provides users with the ability to detect human targets inside buildings, tunnels, containers and in caves providing valuable situational awareness. Human heartbeat detection results are captured and displayed on the ground in real-time.
