Researchers performed a test of the Finding Individuals for Disaster and Emergency Response (FINDER) prototype technology -- which can locate individuals buried in disasters -- at the Virginia Task Force 1 Training Facility in Lorton, VA. The device uses radar technology developed at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., to sense the heartbeats and breathing of humans hidden behind piles of rubble.
