Agility Technologies Corporation’s (ATC’s) FirstLook360 (FL360) is a live streaming, 360-degree technical rescue search camera. The FL360 captures seamless, high-definition streaming spherical panorama video with wired and wireless connectivity in a ruggedized IP67 housing that will fit through a standard two-inch coring hole.

The FL360 contains no moving parts, and the design does away with the rubber bellows that cover a series of joints, motors, gears, pulleys, and/or belts used in today’s available rescue cameras. The FL360 was engineered to increase battery life, decrease search times, and allow a multipurpose tool that can be used in various technical rescue applications including structural collapse, trench, and high-angle. www.firstlook360.com, 604-259-1579
