Technological advances mean more reflectors for more products
From shoes to pants, shorts and jackets, RECCO is posed to introduce ground-breaking technology that will help find lost hikers, rescue missing cyclists and change the way we think about outdoor recreation and safety. With more and more individuals choosing to play outdoors and explore wild places, the need for professional search and rescue organizations to be able to find missing or injured individuals quickly has never been greater. RECCO’s new line of reflectors meets this need.
With these new innovations, RECCO is excited to be able to provide new opportunities to integrate RECCO technology across additional product categories. This new class of reflectors, coupled with the rapid and ongoing deployment of RECCO SAR Helicopter Detectors globally, means that the chances of being found safe in case of a mishap in the outdoors is increasing. Currently there are 19 RECCO SAR Helicopter Detectors worldwide, with six based in North America and 13 units deployed across Europe. The latest deployments include the Teton County Search and Rescue, TCSAR (USA), Alpine Helicopters (CAN) and a RECCO SAR helicopter detector based out of Trento operated by Italy’s CNSAS.
