e - Rescuer with wireless screen

WCT has helped design the 'e-Rescuer' - a thermal imaging equipment that will be used to detect wild animals involved in conflict situations during night, day or foggy conditions

The e-rescuer is likely to enhance the animal-detection
   ability of the rescue team
   manifolds, especially during night and under foggy

It will reduce the risk to the lives of the rescue team
   members during a rescue operation.

The e-rescuer will greatly assist in tracking wild animals,
   planning tranquilization and mitigating man-animal
   conflict situations.
