SRS / Rescue radar system

SRS
SRS

SRS is a product that is designed to help firefighters locate people in distress. The concept is based on existing high-frequency radar technology that records movement and can thus identify living people at a distance even trough heavy smoke and behind barriers. Even the movement of a beating heart is enough for a person to be detected. SRS ability to detect and locate people behind barriers and in heavy smoke allows a rescue operation to be streamlined and planned to avoid unnecessary risk for rescue personnel. Thanks to the efficiency of SRS in the search and location of people the time is reduced, which increasing the chance of survival.
