When it comes to saving the lives of skiers and mountaineerers beneath masses of upset snow and ice, just finding the victims can be more than half the battle. The Airborne Avalanche Rescue System offers human search initiatives a helping hand in the form of an agile unmanned helicopter that can quickly scope out the scene ahead.

Inventor Tatjana Rolle explains that her hi-tech hovering droid is equipped with an ultrasonic sensor and precise GPS navigation and RECCO systems. The airborne robot has the ability to survey extensive sites swiftly, detect movement below, communicate locations to its base station and aid team, as well as dispense a brightly colored dye upon the snow where victims are trapped. The Airborne Avalanche Rescue System (AARS) makes the job easier for people within the assistance effort.
