When Seconds Count

Search & Rescue

From Hidden to Discovered. From Lost to Found.

Time is of the essence whenever someone is stranded on a cold mountainside, in the thick of the woods, or the dark of night. And time and again, FLIR thermal vision and low-light imaging technology continues to save the day.

Whether it’s combing the landscape from a gimbal-equipped helicopter or one of our unmanned aircraft systems, tracking heat signatures with a FLIR unmanned ground vehicle robot scrambling through the underbrush, or spotting a victim through a handheld thermal scope viewfinder, FLIR infrared and electro-optical solutions come to the rescue to help bring those in distress back to safety.
