There is no doubt that this new equipment is amazingly easy to use in the field, and in rubble, including on blocks up to 6 m thick, bricks, stone and reinforced concrete, whenever one or two victims are only able to respond to calls from the surface by light scratching.

LEADER SEARCH life locator and LEADER CAM search camera are user-friendly for the operator with a particularly simple man-machine interface offering optimum ergonomics.
It is particularly fast and easy to browse through the menus: selection of sensors, use of filters and selection of the right sensors located vertically above the victims. Sounds that are picked up are of outstanding quality. Data legibility is excellent, in broad daylight or at night.
There is a second headset for refined analyses and guiding an operator undergoing training.
