What do our customers say?
“The avalanche and people radar installed on Belalp in December 2018 convinced us very quickly and made our work much easier. The real-time information and images provide us with the data and information we need before, during and after an avalanche blast, which helps us make the right decisions”.
Head of Regional Avalanche Safety Service
“The system works very well! It supports us in monitoring the road Taesch-Zermatt. Every single avalanche movement in the area is shown which let’s us assess the situation a lot better.”

“I am totally excited about the system. The avalanche radar is always running, even after an avalanche. In the past, it always took a while to replace trigger lines.”
Head of Safety Department
“The monitoring system works very well. The interferometric radar predicted several glacier detachments a couple of days in advance. Thanks to the avalanche radar we are able to keep running our train operations as the radar would stop our trains in a save place in case of a larger detachment.”
