Rapidly map areas for threats and instantly record and process incident scene data

Leading global Security and Defence organizations use GeoSLAM for:



For first responders, mapping a crime scene or accident quickly is critical and could be the difference in securing convictions.


Instant decisions

Processing a crime scene can take a long time, and critical clues can be missed if things aren’t completed in a timely fashion.


Assessing for safety

Those who attend a scene, particularly fires and other accidents, may have to deal with potentially unsafe structures or terrain.

Operational optimization

Cost effectiveness

Strict budgets often dictate the equipment that is available to the police service.

GeoSLAM in action

“Active shooter incidents are a growing concern in the United States, with death tolls, most predominantly in schools, rapidly rising and law enforcement resources stretched beyond breaking point. Our team is working alongside law enforcement to compress response times, by utilizing 2D floor plans and 3D models developed from GeoSLAM technology. We chose the ZEB REVO-RT for its portability and it provides us with the necessary accuracy and is much more time efficient than other laser scanning technologies.”
