THE FIRSTLOOK360 SEARCH, RESCUE & INSPECTION CAMERA

During a rescue operation, you want to be able to rely on your equipment unconditionally. The rescue operation must not be jeopardized by complex technology or technology failures. This is especially true for search and rescue cameras.

THE FIRSTLOOK360 ADVANTAGES

FIRSTLOOK360 (FL360) is a hybrid rescue camera that uses two cameras and specially developed software to stitch together multiple live spherical streams to create a smooth imagery landscape that can be viewed, analyzed and edited on a mobile device (tablet or smartphone). In addition, the digital video images are transmitted in HD quality and are designed for wired or wireless transmission to an Android mobile device.

Another great advantage offered by this technology is that the images can also be subsequently evaluated in the entire 360-degree spectrum. Not only the respective image sections are evaluated, since the rescue camera stores the entire spherical image. Third parties, such as the rescue leader, can subsequently search freely through the entire 360-degree view, which greatly increases the chances of a successful search.

Some rescue cameras have moving parts to ensure all-round visibility during rescue operations. The sensitive parts enable classic zoom and focus functions. The challenge with devices with such moving parts during a search mission with unpredictable situations is that they can be damaged. The rescue operation is often aborted at this point if a rescue camera is damaged, unless a rescue camera is available as a replacement.

In addition, it is possible to contact or receive sounds from the patient or victim through an intercom system and the microphones and speakers built into the rescue camera. The ability to communicate with patients and victims is an essential and important element of modern rescue cameras.

It is not possible to establish a secure and stable wireless communication between the rescue camera and the tablet for every rescue operation. To ensure that the rescue operation can still be carried out successfully, it is also possible to operate the FIRSTLOOK360 rescue camera wired and thus establish a stable and interference-resistant connection with the search camera.

Our rescue cameras have the advantage that they can be pushed through the smallest cavities and transmit a very good and illuminated image to the screen due to the built-in LED lighting. LED lighting illuminates the environment 360 degrees and saves battery power accordingly compared to classic lighting, which increases the operating time of the rescue camera. LED lighting technology also saves weight, which facilitates the maneuverability of the rescue camera in rescue operations.

In addition, the FIRSTLOOK360 rescue camera can also be used in water and can be easily converted and prepared for longer rescue operations in water. Short missions in wet environments can also be performed with the standard rescue camera equipment without damaging the rescue camera’s microphones and speakers.

The modern and innovative design of the FIRSTLOOK360 rescue camera enables uninterrupted operation, even if the batteries need to be replaced (hot-swap capability). The rescue operation can be continued seamlessly. In addition, the rescue camera uses commercially available rechargeable batteries or batteries and no special products that are time-consuming or costly to procure.

FIRSTLOOK 360. the first wireless 360° streaming rescue camera. FIRSTLOOK360 (FL360) is a hybrid rescue camera that uses two cameras and specially developed software to stitch together multiple spherical live streams to create a smooth imagery landscape that can be viewed, evaluated and edited on a mobile device (tablet or smartphone). In addition, the digital video images are transmitted in HD quality and are designed for wired or wireless transmission to an Android mobile device.


The visual search and rescue equipment in use today has evolved only minimally since its introduction in the 1990s. Any rescuer experienced in technical search can easily point out the weaknesses of current visual search and rescue cameras: they are heavy, the mechanical hinge of the camera head is prone to damage, batteries die quickly, configurations are static, and the equipment is expensive.

STATE-OF-THE-ART TECHNOLOGY, PROVEN RELIABILITY

During a rescue operation, you want to be able to rely on your equipment unconditionally. The rescue operation must not be jeopardized by complex technology or technology failures. This is especially true for search and rescue cameras.


Current economic conditions are forcing rescue institutions such as fire departments to rethink the way technical operations and rescue missions are conducted, as well as the resources and equipment needed for a successful outcome. The visual search and rescue equipment in use today has evolved only slightly since its introduction in the 1990s. Any rescuer experienced in technical search and rescue can easily point out the weaknesses of current visual search and rescue cameras: they are heavy, the mechanical hinge of the camera head is susceptible to damage, batteries die quickly, configurations are static, and the equipment is expensive to maintain.


Innovative and reliable technology can help increase rescue success in disasters such as earthquakes or building collapses by better and more clearly identifying victims and determining their location under the rubble. Of course, this requires a certain degree of innovative technology coupled with absolute reliability even under difficult and harsh conditions at the scene.


FIRSTLOOK360 reduces search time and provides a comprehensive multi-purpose tool that can be used in various technical rescue situations.

APPLICATIONS NOT ONLY IN THE RESCUE SECTOR

Rescue cameras are not only used in rescue. The extraordinary capabilities and the robust design and innovative camera technology make them the ideal operational tool in other areas as well. We would like to show you a particularly exciting example here:

  • Military & law enforcement agencies around the world need to monitor their territorial waters and the shipping traffic that constantly enters and leaves their ports. As part of this security, many agencies have developed Visit Board Search and Seizure Teams (VBSS) specifically to combat terrorism, piracy and smuggling, as well as conduct customs, security and other inspections. FIRSTLOOK360 is the perfect tool for VBSS teams, as the camera offers a lightweight, rugged design with 360° wireless spherical imaging technology that allows them to inspect voids on ships and other watercraft in seconds. In addition, the FIRSTLOOK360 camera can record 360° video and take snapshots that can be reviewed and used as evidence if needed. The goal is to provide the team with another set of eyes in unseen areas where contraband, human trafficking and other illegal activities may be hiding, but also a much smaller visual tool. FL360’s strength lies in its speed, functionality and mobile integration.
  • Customs & Law Enforcement – Customs applications such as assessment & inspection of truck loads, ship loads or air cargo.
  • Industry & Construction – Performing inspections of cavities in bridges and other structures or inspecting tank facilities with difficult or dangerous access.
  • And even in research such camera systems are used, because they enable the initial assessment and safety evaluation of ruins, historical buildings, cave systems and much more.
