MSA keeps you connected.

Connections matter. MSA created a solution to build those vital connections on- and off- the scene by increasing firefighter confidence while simplifying safety. It’s called the MSA Connected Firefighter Platform, driven by LUNAR.

Connections when you need them most.

Emergencies happen. The ability to connect to your team can be the difference in a rescue mission. As part of the Connected Firefighter Platform, each LUNAR device is equipped with the LUNAR-to-LUNAR network, which independently connects between devices. This helps to provide confidence that you are informed and your team is connected when the unexpected happens.

Firefighting Assisting Search Technology (F.A.S.T.)

LUNAR uses groundbreaking technology to aid in the rescue of a downed firefighter. Distance and direction information helps firefighters make key decisions when the pressure is on in a variety of emergency situations—whether inside a structure or at the scene of an accident.

Motion Alarm

Notifies the crew of a downed firefighter by automatically providing critical information.

Collaborative Search

F.A.S.T. enables collaborative search, allowing up to four LUNAR users to search for another firefighter in alarm.

Simplified Safety Through Technology.

The Connected Firefighter platform simplifies safety for your team by providing easily accessible and consolidated data for your safety products—like the G1 SCBA—while improving situational awareness with personal thermal imaging. With automatic connections to the cloud, no extra effort is required from your crew.

Data at Your Fingertips

Improved Situational Awareness

LUNAR provides safety on every call through personal thermal imaging with edge detection for improved situational awareness.

Wireless Connectivity Using LTE-M

Wireless connectivity that enables direct connection to the cloud and transmission of real-time stats to Incident Command and personnel remotely monitoring, including alarm status.
