A Beacon of Life

Likeseeker is based on a simple premise: mobile phones are the most extended beacons in the world. Mobile communication technologies have had an enormous social impact in recent years and mostly everyone owns a mobile phone. Lifeseeker takes advantage of this and turns these widely used devices into emergency beacons capable of leading rescue teams to the exact location.

This system allows rescue teams during SAR operations to communicate with the missing person – without the victim taking any action. This way, the rescue team will be able to quickly access important information such as the state of the victim or if there are immediate medical needs.

Accurate Geolocation

Lifeseeker is an airborne mission system for SAR, capable of accurately locating missing persons through their mobile phones – even in areas with no network coverage and under adverse weather conditions. It can be used on both manned (planes and helicopters) and unmanned aerial platforms (UAVs/drones).

This device turns phones into emergency beacons that quickly guide Search and Rescue teams to the exact location of the missing person. Lifeseeker maximizes missions in which every second counts by efficiently locating the person in need.

Search efficiency

SAR Mission Optimization

Lifeseeker is an airborne mission system for planes, helicopters and UAVs/drones that can make a big difference in any rescue team. It allows to perform search and rescue missions even under low or no visibility conditions, including night flights. This innovative technology also helps reduce sweep time during SAR operations and requires less manpower, optimizing operational costs.

User-friendly Interface

Lifeseeker’s interface is intuitive and user-friendly. This web-based interface can be easily operated on a tablet or laptop by any member of the SAR team, without needing a technical background in cellular networks to operate the system.

SAR teams can train using Lifeseeker Center, an online tool that acts as a powerful simulator. Once the mission is accomplished, this tool can also be used for debriefing purposes.

Tested in collaboration with Rega

Lifeseeker has been developed according to the requirements of recognized SAR organizations like REGA. As one of the early adopters of the product, they have tested the system in their operational field and have participated in the design and improvement processes. That’s how we’ve been able to meet the needs of their most challenging missions.
