Radar systems monitor several mi² for avalanches, debris flows or rockfall and automatically close traffic routes within seconds.

What do our customers say?
“The AADS (Autonomous Avalanche Detection System) supports us considerably in assessing the current avalanche situation and enables us to better understand the regional avalanche conditions. As a result, we have been able to verify the accuracy of our forecasts and significantly reduce closure times of the highway by more than 40% of the annual average this season.” District Avalanche Supervisor

“The glacier 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.”
“The alarm 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.”
“The monitoring system is very user friendly. It is a perfect tool to increase the road safety as well as to analyse and document events easily.”

“During critical weather situations, we can rely on the alarm system and no longer have to be on constant alert. The different measurements allow us to learn more about the characteristics of the Carrera creek and to assess situations even better in the future.“

“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.”
