Expert Testimonials

Reviews from industry experts and what they’ve said about the Loc8 software and its application for search and rescue missions.

“To be able to set parameters of colors, cluster size, and ranges then scan through hundreds of images and identify targets in minutes is GOING TO BE A GAME CHANGER!  Being able to scan to the pixel level suddenly brings “trace element searching” to reality which, heretofore, has only been used to identify large items.  If you are flying drones for Public Safety or even private search organizations this software is a very serious consideration.”
