SATS is the worlds first mechanical avalanche triggering system. The patented solution is self sufficient and can easily be set up in nearly any alpine terrain. SATS offers entirely new possibilities to avalanche safety with minimal impact on the environment. The triggering mechanism kicks from the ground upwards silently and retracts shortly after. Steel ropes on both sides of the main lifting plate form the triggering zone for each unit. This results in a controlled "cut" in the snowpack or cornice which in turn releases the avalanche.
