Rega – Swiss Air-Rescue

IR/EOS multi-sensor search system

High-tech for the search for missing, injured or ill persons.

The search for missing or injured persons has belonged to Rega’s core competences since the very beginning. With the IR/EOS multi-sensor search system, which was put into operation in 2018, Rega now has an additional aid when searching for missing persons.

Before a search flight, the system is installed on and in the Rega helicopter and subsequently operated by a specially trained person in the cabin. The high-tech system comprises a highly sensitive infrared camera, optical sensors, a computer console in the cabin and a connected searchlight. This makes it possible to perform searches efficiently and over large areas both during the day and at night and thus rescue people in distress as swiftly as possible.
