Agility Technologies Corp – The first live streaming 360° technical rescue camera
Agility Technologies Corporation (ATC), was established with an ambitious mission to put the “Tech” back in Technical Rescue by harnessing recent advances in technology and building practical rescue solutions. ATC founders’ combined over 30 years of experience in the development and manufacture of rescue equipment with the technical abilities of a young focused team of innovative engineers to create the FirstLook360 (patent pending). We recognized a growing global trend of authorities asking Fire/Rescue organizations to do more with less. This reality created an environment where equipment manufacturers need to think outside the box and develop cost effective tools that are more than single use devices.
FL360 is the first live streaming 360° multi-purpose technical rescue camera designed to provide Rescue professionals with a versatile tool to assist them to improvise, adapt and overcome many of the challenges they face with on a daily basis. Leveraging high definition wide angle imaging technologies has completely removed the necessity for delicate mechanical articulation mechanisms to move the camera head. A rescuer can simply probe the camera in any space, hang by a carabiner or locate at a high point and view the 360 live image by swiping a finger across the screen or by using FL360’s virtual joystick feature to zero in a particular area of interest. This combined with the connectivity of both wired and wireless modes of operation make the FL360 a real game changer.
While the primary function of the FL360 is as a survivor location / void search camera following an Earthquake, Tsunami, Hurricane, Tornado etc. – the portability and connectivity features allow the FL360 to be utilized in variety of operational scenario’s such as; trench rescue, rope rescue, vehicle extrication, hazmat, situational awareness and more!
