ATC launches the Reach and Rescue Telescopic Rescue Pole Adapter for the FL360 Spherical Vision Camera

Agility Technologies is excited to announce the launch of the Reach and Rescue Long Reach Telescopic Rescue Pole Adapter the FirstLook360 Spherical Vision Camera.

Reach and Rescue based in the UK (www.reachandrescue.com) are leading the charge in extended reach capabilities in the Emergency Services. Their equipment is fast becoming standard equipment on vehicles around the world. The FirstLook360 camera can operate both wired or wirelessly and has an attachment provision for a tripod or extendable pole so rather than starting from scratch, it made a great deal of sense to work together and develop an adapter that would allow FL360 to be used with a Reach and Rescue telescoping pole. For our customers this approach will result in saving time, saving money and saving space on a rescue vehicle.

In addition, this cross over capability give rescuers one more tool in the toolbox to adapt improvise and overcome obstacles with a goal of improving outcomes. Reach and Rescue poles are available in lengths up to 17M (55 ft) giving rescuers easy access to upper floor windows, visuals of roof layouts or probe deeply into shaft, cave and/or well.

“We are ecstatic to work with Jo, Sean and the team at Reach and Rescue. Rescuers will certainly experience the benefits of this collaboration, “said Andy Ibbetson, Director of Product Development at Agility Technologies.

USAR Search Techniques

USAR Search Techniques

Great article written in Technical Rescue Magazine by Daryl Ashford-Smith on USAR search techniques featuring the White Helmets.

http://www.agilitycorp.com/…/upl…/2018/09/TR73SyrianUSAR.pdf

Regardless of your thoughts on this organization and the anti-White Helmet sentiment from the Syrian and Russian govt’s the fact of the matter is, search is search, no matter what organization responds. #USAR #techrescue #response #search #technicalrescue #structuralcollapse #collapse #buildingcollapse #specialops #whitehelmets

FL360 will be taking part in the 2018 Patriot North Exercise at Volk Field Air National Guard Base in Wisconsin. Patriot North brings together over 900 civilian and military personnel from over 40 National Guard units and other organizations

When a natural disaster strikes, the efforts of government and civilian organizations are required to support relief operations. Coordination among these organizations may occur after a tornado, flooding, a HAZMAT incident, or another type of state emergency. National Guard units along with state and civilian agencies work together to provide life-saving services and emergency response

FIVE Reasons to Consider the FirstLook360 over Traditional Search Cameras

FIVE Reasons to Consider the FirstLook360 over Traditional Search Cameras

1. Faster Searches

2. Operational Flexibility

3. Collaboration

4. Reduced Down-time

5. Capability Augmentation 

 

1.  Faster Search 

Upon entry into a void space the FL360 instantly captures a live 360-degree spherical view which can be controlled and explored by simply swiping a finger in any direction across the viewing screen. Two-way audio capability allows a simultaneous audio search. The lightweight modular design makes it easier and faster to transport & deploy.

2.  Operational Flexibility 

The FL360 can operate in either wired or wireless modes and is extremely versatile. The design is portable, rugged, modular and IP68 rated to support use in a variety of operational situations; Structural Collapse, Fire Investigation, Evidence Gathering, Vehicle Extrication, Confined Space, Hazmat, and High Angle rescue. Multiple threaded connection points on the camera head allow it to be easily adapted to function with other hardware & equipment.

3.  Collaboration 

The tablet that comes with FL360 Kit can be connected via GSM/3G and LTE making it compatible with mobile networks around the world (including FirstNet). Live view or snapshot recordings can be shared, stored for secondary review, or viewed in virtual reality. Meta data such as source, time, date, GPS location, allow recordings to be plotted on mapping programs.

4.  Reduced Down-time

The FL360 contains no moving parts yet achieves a wider field of view than competitive units. Mechanical articulated joints, integral to traditional products are prone to failure and breakage. Repairs are expensive and can put a traditional camera out of service for periods of a month or more. The FL360 comes standard with onboard diagnostics and software that can be updated over the internet greatly reducing the potential for down time due to service.

5.  Capability Augmentation 

An ongoing process of software development and capability enhancement based upon direct customer feedback will increase the capability of the FL360 going forward. Upgrades and additional features can be downloaded to augment an existing camera head capability. This adds a significant forward-looking value proposition over traditional search camera systems that are stand alone and static.

FirstLook360 and Law Enforcement Applications

FirstLook360 and Law Enforcement Applications

Wow! What an awesome experience it is to take a product into a whole new world! The FirstLook 360 was built to be rugged and multipurpose but who knew the extent of it!… Last week we were in the UK and met with a prominent Police force to discuss law enforcement applications for the FL360 camera. The next couple of hours was a combination of enlightenment (for us) and excitement (for us all) as the cogs of our minds started turning and we explored the many potential use cases for the FL360 by Law enforcement professionals, it was a really eye opening experience. Follows is a quick summary of the areas this rugged 360 camera could be used.

Specialty Firearm teams, Emergency Response Teams, Prisons, Hostage Situations, Drug Lab Takedowns, Large Vehicle Search, Ship Board Void Search & Seizure, Room Entry & Clearing, Building search – attics, basements, crawlspaces. Additionally, the ability to record and share and playback a full 360 view of an area before carrying out an operation could be a real game changer.

We left a camera system for evaluation and trial can’t wait to get the feedback… more to come on this…
