What We Do

During a rescue mission, each day, hour and minute are critical to maximizing the chances of finding a person alive. Inefficiencies in the search and rescue process, including lack of technology and specialized skills, poor or inefficient organization and delay or inequity in accessing resources can hamper rescue efforts and drastically reduce the chances of finding loved ones alive.


The Search Tech Advisory Team draws on real-world search and rescue experience, plus substantial technical expertise, to advise and support rescue efforts. Our on-the-ground team is based in the Hawaiian Islands, where we focus our efforts. Upon request and availability, we will provide tools like off-the-grid local communication for voice and data, and expertise on location to equip and train local communities in conducting an efficient and through search using the innovative technologies and practices we have developed.

Who We Are

Our dedicated team is made up of experienced search and rescue professionals, who provide on-the-ground support in organizing search efforts, and technical experts in the fields of GPS and wireless communications, who aid in the effective implementation of technology to improve efficiency and thoroughness of searches.

The Search Tech Advisory team was founded upon the successful recovery of Amanda Eller after 17 days in the Hawaiian wilderness. Our team is composed of family and friends who were deeply touched by this rescue mission and wanted to give back by sharing the methodology and technology developed during this search in order to aid future missions and bring more loved ones back to their families.
