In case of a likely deceased missing person or a mass fatality incident, like an airplane crash, a search and recovery team is deployed. During the search, the team is exposed to risks, and the chance of a successful search is negated by environmental factors. During this presentation, Tristan Krap presents a new method for these searches, which minimises risks and increases the chance of finds.
