In the search and rescue of building collapse victims time is critical. Rescuers need to be equipped with technologies and methods that match and support their courage and determination to save lives. VTT has played a leading role in instrument development for the EU-funded Second Generation Locator for Urban Search and Rescue Operations (SGL for USaR) project. VTT's aim was to provide technological support to enable maximum effective use of the limited time available to rescue teams.
