PowderBee supports the rescue of avalanche victims. The small, lightweight and portable drone uses the same signal as the manual method, knows the search pattern and moves ten times faster than humans. It is ready in seconds, defies wind, cold and snow, and starts with the simple push of a button. Once it indicates the victim's location, the human searchers continue with the manual fine search.

"Any technology that increases the speed or probability of finding avalanche victims is extremely welcome. Once properly tested, it should be used everywhere."
