NASA’s Finding Individuals for Disaster and Emergency Response

NASA’s new radar technology was able to detect the heartbeats of men trapped under 10 feet of rubble due to the devastating 7.8-magnitude Nepalese earthquake. NASA deployed two prototypes of the new search-and-rescue technology, called FINDER (Finding Individuals for Disaster and Emergency Response), which uses microwave-radar to pinpoint faint heartbeats, allowing emergency teams to respond accordingly.
