Canadian Department of National Defence Selects CENTUM’s Lifeseeker Search and Rescue Technology
The company CENTUM, with headquarters in Bavaria, Germany, has announced that the Canadian Department of National Defence (DND) has selected its Lifeseeker technology for Royal Canadian Air Force Search and Rescue operations. It is a central part of the Canadian Cellular Airborne Sensor Search and Rescue (CASSAR) project.
Alexander Martínez, CEO of CENTUM Germany, says: “CENTUM’s Lifeseeker has been successfully deployed in the most challenging scenarios, such as finding missing people concealed by a dense forest or buried under a blanket of snow.”
In addition to location, the Lifeseeker can be used to communicate with the missing person, for example, to assess medical needs or to determine the best location for recovery. However, the technology does not rely on the missing person taking any action.
“We are pleased that our technology will now help save lives in Canada. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank the State of Bavaria Montréal Office for their active local support during the application process,” Alexander Martínez adds.
CENTUM is an international company with offices in Spain and Germany and more than 15 years of experience in providing development services and products in the field of communication and intelligence systems and in the field of electronic intelligence (SIGINT) for its customers in the aerospace, defense, emergency, security and telecommunications sectors.
