Our patent

Our patent was granted by the Austrian Patent Office in March 2022.

Advantages of SATS:

  • Quiet and almost unlimited triggering
  • Low operating costs, low maintenance costs
  • No risk of injury from detonating agents
  • Sustainability, as no blasting agent residues are produced
  • Reliable triggering through remote control
  • The tank is filled or the containers replaced from the helicopter
  • Snow depth measurement before and after triggering the avalanche release
  • Automatic system check of functional readiness
Technical data
  • Electrical supply through fuel generator and accumulators, and alternatively solar and wind energy (combination of several methods possible)
  • Remote control or via smartphone app
  • Temperature range to -40 °C
  • Electronic monitoring of accumulators (state of battery charge)
  • Fluid levels and temperature monitoring
  • Substructure made of steel construction
  • Additional installation option without lifting plate, only steel cables for cutting the snow cover
  • Lifting plate
  • 1 or more lifting cylinders (hydraulic, pneumatic or electric)
  • Hydraulic pump with 380 V power supply from generator as well as other voltages and currents plus three-phase and direct current
  • Hydraulic or pneumatic lines with valves
  • Heating panels in the feed box with double control provide a temperature lower limit of
    +5 °C, above which it is switched off (constant temperature for electrical system and electronics)
  • Radio or GPRS module
  • Valves for hydraulics or pneumatics
  • Hydraulic oil (biological)
  • Alarm when touched in idle mode
  • Vandal protection or integrated anti-theft module
  • Lightning protection module against overvoltage
External structure
  • Sheet metal container
  • Remote control receiver and heating elements for electronics
  • Hydraulic tank with pump
  • Webcam

The anchors are drilled and set in the bare rock and in loose ground with the help of a template. Thanks to the exact preliminary work, helicopter flights are reduced and no concrete is used. The transmission mast is secured by tension ropes.
