CENTUM has released the key Lifeseeker data from the past year, drawn largely from Europe and North American, but also from Asia and Oceania. This data around the SAR payload includes the timings of each stage of a SAR mission, as well as locations, conditions, and vehicle types.


Key Data of Lifeseeker.

Lifeseeker is helping SAR teams around the world to save lives and optimize operational cost. Lifeseeker is now used by nearly 40 SAR operators in over 20 countries across four continents. In the past year, 70% of missions were conducted in Europe, 20% in North America, and the remaining 10% were split between Oceania and Asia. But, how this airborne phone location system works?

Lifeseeker is the airborne phone location system that pinpoints mobile phones accurately, even without network coverage and under adverse weather conditions. Our system turns a mobile phone into an emergency beacon capable of leading rescue teams to its exact location. Lifeseeker also acts as a relay and can provide a communication channel between the missing person and the rescue team.

Lifeseeker: Search and Rescue DataThe key Lifeseeker data from the past year is:

  • 5 minutes: the average geolocation.
  • > 10 minutes: the average search time.
  • > 30 meters: the average accuracy.
  • Within 5 meters: top accuracy score.
  • 75% of the missions were carried out in remote or mountainous enviorements.
  • 5% of these occurred under avalanche conditions.
  • 25% of the missions took place in urban or semi-urban areas.
  • Lifeseeker was used on helicopters in 65% of the missions.
  • It was used on drones for the remaining 35%.

The Royal Canadian Air ForceREGA, the Swiss Air ForceVigili del Fuoco, etc. are some of the Lifeseeker users that test everyday in missions our system and prove this data.

As our CEO, Héctor Estévez said “Lifeseeker has been used in a wide variety of missions, from finding people trapped in avalanches to a pensioner who fell over and became disorientated while gathering mushrooms. And it was used onboard both SAR helicopters and drones. This data shows just how adaptable Lifeseeker is and that it can be used in any environment find people quickly and efficiently.”
