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.
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.

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…
What’s great about a wireless mobile integrated 360° technical rescue camera? App updates!!!!! Oh yes, finally a rescue camera that gets better over time. We’ve got a new update to the FL360 App media gallery and want to share the new features.
1. Scrubbing – An operator can now fast forward/rewind/pause through an entire 360° recorded video.
2. Looping – We now offer one touch continuous play.
3. Metadata – Images are now stamped with GPS coordinates, date, time, camera serial number, and size of file. Videos already have this feature.
4. Mapping – Images are now cached on the map for review.
5. Media Tab – we now have both images and videos located in the same screen.
6. Recorded Video Snapshot – While playing recorded 360° video the operator can now record snapshots. Those snapshots will also have metadata attached.
More to come, so stay tuned for more from the Agility Bat Lab!

How incredible would it be to have images and 360° video of void spaces marked on a map where they were taken? Visual markers taken throughout the entire search campaign and shared amongst response teams. Well, for the first time in a rescue, our camera, FirstLook360 and the FL360 App give you the ability to do this. The picture shown in the post displays 360° videos in numbered clusters that were recorded at specific locations. As you zoom in closer in the map the clusters can and will separate in the location they were recorded. Simply press one of the numbered markers and voila, a library of 360° videos recorded at the scene that are available for the operator to share instantly. The video files include GPS, date, time, FL360 camera serial number, and file size data.
This is the first of many advances the Agility team will introduce over time and we’re really excited for whats next.

When search and rescue cameras were introduced in the early 1990’s they changed the way technical search specialists conducted operations in collapsed structures. Since that time, technology has moved forward by leaps and bounds but search camera development over the same period appears to have stalled. Current technical search cameras contain an image sensor mounted in a housing that requires it to move left or right via a series of small servo motors attached to fine pitch gears, drives or pulley’s. The camera body is then turned 90 degrees so that the head moves up or down to provide a view of the rest of the space. The mechanical movement of the camera head has its drawbacks and anyone who uses them regularly will tell you that the mechanical head is prone to; breakage, expensive repairs and potentially lengthy periods where the equipment is out of service.(más…)
