How did the invention of SATS come about?
Founder Manfred Singer came up with the idea for SATS based on a very personal experience. Being a native of the Tyrolean mountains means hearing avalanche blasts over and over again. For locals although this has indeed become quite a usual sound, in fact it is actually a kind of noise nuisance and a source of very strong noise pollution. He became acutely aware of this when he was visiting friends and their dog hid, trembling and completely frightened after the boom of the avalanche blast.
