The supply unit provides power for up to five connected release plates. It consists of a fuel cell, fuel tanks, a high performance battery pack, a radio tower with a 4K camera monitoring system, a LTE communication unit and powerful solar panels. The fuel cell and solar panels work together to keep the battery pack charged, even when there is no sunshine. This way the fuel tanks can last longer than a usual winter season* and at the most supply units can run several seasons without a refill.

Autonomy is the main design goal to bring sustainable and silent avalanche triggering systems to the most remote locations. SATS supply units don´t need a cable data connection or power lines and can easily be installed in remote and exposed terrain. It can be transported as one piece and works out of the box after anchoring to the ground and connecting triggering plates. Most maintenance tasks like refilling fuel tanks are aided by a construction that allows swift and quick swapping of tanks or parts to keep the necessary time on location as short as possible. The only residue from fuel cell power generation is distilled water and even that is collected in a container to avoid any pollution of alpine habitats.

Via the SATS control panel unlimited supply units and triggering plates can be interconnected and organized in hierarchies as groups, arrays and resorts to create a comprehensive system of avalanche actuators.

* Depends on location, orientation, connected triggering plates and frequency of actuations.
