Portable Radar-Set for Rescuers


Portable Radar-Set is used for search-and-rescue operations in the areas of natural disasters or technogenic catastrophes. The radar is intended for detection and definition of location of people under fragments of buildings and constructions after earthquakes, explosions, fires, etc.

It can be also used for detection of moving objects behind optically non-transparent obstacles. The principle of operation of this unit is based on recording informative phase shifts of the signal, which are stipulated by Doppler frequency bias. It occurs due to interaction between probing radiation and the moving object.

Main performance characteristics:

  • Maximum distance to the obstacle –––––– 15 m
  • Detectable objects depth –––––––––––––– up to 5 m
  • Distance resolution ratio ––––––––––––––– 0.7 m
  • Wave band ––––––––––––––––––––––––– decimetric
  • Self-contained power supply
  • Weight (without power supply unit) –––––– 3 kg
  • Weight of the power supply unit ––––––––– 5 kg
  • Overall dimensions ––––––––––––––––––– 400х150х140 mm3
  • Operating time without recharge –––––––– not least than 8 hours.

Innovative Aspect and Main Advantages

The device allows quickly find out people after a mancaused catastrophes behind bricks or concrete barriers. The process of palpitation, breathing and motion of extremities is the distinctive sign of living man. It is possible to select these signs by the Doppler analysis of echo-signals of radar.

Areas of Application

  • Rescue services for search and rescue operations in the areas of snow avalanche and other natural disasters or mancaused catastrophes;
  • Counterterrorist (military or police) units for men detection in guard or restricted areas;
  • Medicine service for remote measurement (non invasive) the process of palpitation, breathing.
