On 22 February 1999 at 5 PM a gigantic powder avalanche descended near Blatten, Switzerland. The width of the so-called "ridge avalanche" was 3.5 km with a slab thickness of 3 to 8 m (P. Schwitter & L. Stoffel, ISSW 2009 in German). The avalanche destroyed or...read more
In natural hazards, the implementation of alarm systems with automatic road or rail closures requires the consideration of a number of important aspects. The aim is to keep closing times of transport routes as short as possible while at the same time ensuring safety...read more
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 Security 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.”
