After an avalanche, every second counts, as after just 15 minutes the chances of survival for anyone buried under the snow drop dramatically. Mammut has been working on the issue of avalanche safety for years: avoiding accidents and ensuring rapid rescue are the top priorities.

Mammut PULSE Barryvox
PULSE Barryvox Intelligent Search
Our developers have been working intensively to optimize our PULSE Barryvox. The result is a simplified and even more effective search for buried subjects following an avalanche. The improved graphics-guided and audio-supported fine search revolutionizes fine searching in a cross (bracketing) in the last few meters. Indication of the probing point can help to locate a buried subject not only more precisely, but also faster. Bearing in mind that every second saved in an emergency can mean the difference between life and death, this new feature makes a valuable contribution to safety.
«It helps locate a buried subject not only more precisely, but also faster.»
Audio-supported fine searching in a cross (bracketing) is simplified by using arrows. These clearly show on the display the direction to walk in, based on the distance and signal information in relation to the avalanche transceiver.
By providing this information on when to change search direction, the device supports you and indicates when to change from fine searching in a cross (bracketing) to probing (pinpointing). The starting point for guided fine searching also adapts dynamically to the depth of burial and the device guides the rescuer based on the remaining distance to the buried subject using one or more fine searching processes in a cross (bracketing).
