Search and Rescue Equipment

April 24th 2013 was the darkest day in the history of Bangladesh’s garment industry: 1,129 people were killed when the Rana Plaza building in Dhaka collapsed.

In this type of situation, time is always precious to rescue victims and USAR teams must act quickly and efficiently. LEADER’s new and innovative range of Search and Rescue equipment will help USAR teams around the world save more lives in less time.

A new range of Search and Rescue Equipment!

LEADER is proud to introduce a new generation of search and rescue equipment designed for technical search specialists by technical search specialists. These innovative products are lightweight, ergonomic and efficient to give the greatest advantage in all phases of search (Hasty, Primary and Secondary).

This range of equipment has been vastly improved, offering cutting edge efficiency and reliability during search and rescue operations. Find victims EASIER, FASTER, SAFER!


LEADER Search wireless life detector is used in rescue operations to detect and then locate the position of victims entombed in collapsed structures. LEADER Search will pinpoint and detect the slightest of vibrations by effectively turning the entire structure into a giant microphone.

Featuring 3 wireless sensors with a range in excess of 100m (328′), and the additional option of up to 3 wired sensors, the LEADER Search delivers unequalled flexibility, sound quality and sound propagation.

LEADER Search comes complete with an ultra-lightweight and compact control box incorporating a full colour screen and user friendly menus and graphics.

Offering versatility in choice – whether you choose the LEADER Search 3 wireless sensor option through to the complete 3 wireless / 3 wired version, we provide a robust waterproof two way audio communication probe.


LEADER Cam search camera with communication is used during rescue operations to visually locate and communicate with victims. It is designed to identify with accuracy and precision the location of buried victims in difficult to enter confined spaces, communicate with them and evaluate and monitor their condition.

Completely redesigned, its new compact and lightweight features provide the operator unrivalled ease of use.

Its ultra-lightweight carbon fibre telescopic probe, extra-large full colour screen, user friendly menu and graphics make the LEADER Cam the ideal tool for search operations. Its flexibility makes it ideal for use in a one man operation or when working as a team.


The WORLD’s only multi-functional HASTY tool: SEE, SEARCH and SAVE with just one tool!

LEADER Hasty combines:

– A search camera mode for a visual and precise location of victims. Its ultra-lightweight probe is equipped with high intensity lights and flexible articulation of the camera head, which incorporates a microphone/speaker to allow communication between rescuer and victim.

– A seismic detection mode for use with up to three wireless sensors for detecting signs of life.

The ability to switch instantly between “visual search mode” and WIRELESS “audible search mode” in one deployment vastly improves the effectiveness and mobility of the rescuer and greatly reduces the time taken to find victims while increasing their chance of survival.
