October 2, 2019 | The CURSOR project

A new European research initiative will develop innovative ways of detecting victims trapped under debris

Bonn, 2nd October 2019

In the face of natural or man-made disaster, urban search and rescue teams and other first responders like police, medical units or civil protection race against the clock to locate survivors within the critical 72-hour timeframe, often at their own peril due to the presence of instable structures or hazardous environments.
