Areas of Impact

A new book was recently published called Lost Person Behavior: A Search and Rescue Guide on Where to Look — for Land, Air and Water by R. J. Koester. (I strongly recommend reading this book, well, reading it once I return it to the lab since I am reading it now.) He reports that over half of searches for lost persons within three hours and ten minutes. This suggest to me that we need to rethink how we can best support searches since I don't think we'll be much help in the three hour searches. The purpose of this thread is to discuss some ways to increase our likely impact on WiSAR. I've broken these ideas down into two categories – things that I think we'll be able to do in the near-term, and things that we'll be able to do after a lot more research. Feel free to edit or suggest changes.

I organized my thoughts in a different structure, so I'll post them here first, and then comment on the Near-Term and Far-Term page. – Lannylin

I organized my thoughts in single short blurb. See Carson's Comments
