Zistos' wide range of portable video systems helps rescue personnel more safely and effectively locate trapped victims in collapsed building scenarios. These systems are made in the USA and have all the features needed in a search and rescue system
The Zistos Rescue System (WS-RS-A9T) is our base rescue system including low light color camera, two way talkback communication device display and articulating pole. The system is designed for one man operation and all pole, camera and audio components are under two inches [50mm] in diameter for use through FEMA standard two inch core holes allowing search teams to optimize time and effectiveness in the field.
Designed to locate victims in the shortest amount of time—all while maintaining the safety of the rescue team. The extremely portable and modular design allows the kit to be easily hand-carried over the most challenging terrain and be instantly configured on-site to adapt to any rescue scenario. This inherent adaptability through modular design saves time and, ultimately, lives.
Task Force Rescue System
Zistos’ Task Force Rescue System (WS-TFRST) is our FEMA standard rescue system including redundant low light color cameras, two way talkback communication device, display and two articulating poles. With a nine foot [2.7m] and three foot [0.9M] pole and redundant camera the Task Force rescue Kit allows a single operator to perform efficient external recon and internal search of a collapsed structure with backup camera and pole to ensure long operation even if a component is damaged.
Fire Extension System
The Zistos Fire Extension System is an essential tool that will save time in discovering the seat of the fire and allow for it to be extinguished more rapidly during a light smoke alarm call. The pole-mounted thermal camera and body-worn, portable video inspection system can be inserted into a void space in a ceiling, floor or wall to inspect for signs of fire extension.The pole and camera combination can be used to quickly push ceiling tiles out of the way and look into voids without the need for a ladder. This process can be accomplished by a single individual in industrial, commercial and retail properties without the need to move furniture and fixtures to access ceiling space. The Zistos Fire Extension System allows this critical task to be performed faster, more safely and effectively than with conventional inspection procedures. The system is fully compatible with the complete line of Zistos video rescue systems and accessories. As with all Zistos portable video systems, the new FES system is easy to operate with a minimum of training.
Zoom Rescue System
The Zistos WS-RS-A9TZ is our Zoom Rescue System that includes both our standard 1.6" dimeter fixed focal length low light color camera head for insertion into tight areas, as well as an interchangeable low light camera head that features a true 10x optical zoom. The optical zoom feature allows technical search personnel to zoom in and examine the smallest details in a void space to help identify the presence and location of a trapped victim. The system also includes a two way talk-back communication device, display, and articulating pole.
The system is designed for one man operation, to locate victims in the shortest amount of time—all while maintaining the safety of the rescue team. The extremely portable and modular design allows the kit to be easily hand-carried over the most challenging terrain and be instantly configured on-site to adapt to any rescue scenario. This inherent adaptability through modular design saves time and, ultimately, lives.
Portable Network Surveillance Camera
The Zistos Portable Network Surveillance Camera (PNSC) provides encrypted, wireless IP-based video surveillance. It is a self-contained, battery-operated, wireless network camera in a single, rugged, weatherproof, carry case with wheels and handle for easy transportation. It includes a rechargeable battery, telescoping pole (up to 78" high), and infrared camera that can be remotely controlled. No external power or wires are needed for its operation and images can be viewable on a PC or laptop.
It can be rapidly deployed anywhere and the system can be set up in less than five minutes. The PNSC is suitable for a wide range of applications including surveillance, border security, disaster management, and industrial site safety/security.
Now available with either Mesh technology or standard WiFi.
Universal Wireless Link
The Universal WiFi Link (UWL) is a self-contained, battery-operated, wireless network device that digitally transmits encrypted analog video to a remote laptop, PC, iTouch, iPhone, iPad, or android device through the use of a low cost app. The UWL's design is small enough to be body-worn, but with power and transmission capabilities that make it a highly versatile tool. The device quickly provides remote visual access in many different scenarios where a remote monitoring station or a second set of eyes is required.
The UWL is offered with an optional varifocal camera that can be mounted to the unit so that it may be used as a drop camera. This waterproof camera can be used in either color or black and white mode, or can be set to automatically switch to color mode, when light is plentiful and back to black and white mode, when it gets dark for superior low-light performance.
Backpack Surveillance Tower
The Backpack Surveillance Tower (BST) is designed to provide wireless, high-angle surveillance capability that can be rapidly deployed in the field. The backpack allows the system to be transported by a single individual over rough terrain. Applications include border security, security at F.O.B.’s, reconnaissance, tactical missions, disaster management, mobile asset security, large outdoor gatherings.
The ExplorerSCOPE™ is the new benchmark in collapse rescue / victim location technology for the technical search specialist. It's a rapidly-deployable search camera system that can be inserted through openings as small as 10mm in diameter to look for victims following a collapse. The ExplorerSCOPE combines a powerful internal laser light source coupled with electronically-enhanced low-light video processing that can generate images of objects and individuals as far as 40+ feet (12 M) away in pitch darkness. A battery-powered, four-way articulated — up, down, left, right — video system that features a submersible, semi-rigid, flex-and-stay guide tube. It can maintain a horizontal position to span a gap when inserted into a void space. The unique features of the ExplorerSCOPE translate into a faster search operation which can save lives in time-critical rescue situations.
ExplorerSCOPE is supplied with hard carry case, two rechargeable lithium batteries, battery charger, battery cradle, and rigid guide tube. It is compatible with an optional Zistos 5.6" LCD to allow additional viewers.
