How Fire Departments use the OSCR Capture Kit
Outside a Scene
Capture perimeter photos, images of the crowd inconspicuously, and structural damage. Put OSCR on a tripod and take 360 photos through a window or open area to help you determine if a structure is safe to enter.
Inside a Scene
Once the scene is deemed safe to enter, OSCR captures point of origin and burn patterns, documents the digging process, and interior structural damage. OSCR orients North and allows you to orient yourself at the scene using GPS.
Code Enforcement & Special Operations
OSCR can also assist Fire Agencies with documenting code violations, structure damage or potentially unsafe buildings. Special Operations teams use the system to document hazardous materials incidents, water or boating incidents and more.

Your Word on the Street
Here are some frequently asked questions we have heard from Fire Marshals, Fire Investigators, and Fire Departments.
How much does OSCR360 cost?
A complete OSCR360 capture kit and (1) desktop license starts around $10k. Accessories, such as a 27ft tripod, and additional licenses are offered for an additional cost. First-in-State discounts are available. Make sure you ask us about this!
Can I bring OSCR to a wet scene?
Yes. You regularly enter dark, wet, dangerous scenes. An add-on OSCR360 Rain Kit is available to protect the OSCR360 system in wet and dripping environments. The protective housing can easily be wiped down after use. OSCR is being used by Fire Agencies in wet environments, during chemical and biological threat incidents, meth lab investigations, MRSA scenes and more.
How quick can I take 360 degree photos?
OSCR360 works as quickly as you do. OSCR360 can take pictures as quickly as you can walk from room to room. Quickly capture your overall photos in 360 degrees in under 4 seconds.
Why is HDR important and what is it?
The OSCR360 Capture Kit allows you to take photos in HDR mode. Use HDR mode to capture charring and scaling, even in poorly lit and dark conditions. HDR stands for High Dynamic Range. This setting allows you to take and view photos exactly how your eye sees the room.
How will OSCR benefit my Department?
OSCR brings speed and ease to arson investigation and scene documentation. Quickly take overall photos in 4-10 seconds. Instead of 40-60 individual DSLR photos, take 3-4 OSCR photos to capture your scene overalls. Build your OSCR360 project with the desktop software. Embed points of interest and use OSCR projects to show context and burn patterns, use in the courtroom, and /or use for preplanning and training.
Why do I need the desktop software?
The OSCR360 software gives you the ability to walk through a space as if you were there. It not only contains your 360 degree photography, but allows you to add in multi media files (including blueprints, video files, audio recordings, and more). Create a fully interactive project within OSCR360 and use the final project for continuous training. You can choose to share the OSCR projects with other agencies including schools, hospitals, Police Departments, or county officials. You can even use the OSCR360 projects for joint agency training for active shooter drills and pre fire emergency response plans.
