PowderBuddy is a personal avalanche safety drone for skiers and snowboarders. In a dangerous situation it is shot out of its tube, unfolds and tracks the user’s avalanche beacon above the avalanche. In case of a burying it hovers over the exact location of the victim thus indicating the location immediately to rescuers. We built a small series of 25 based on our 8th prototype “Icarus” and test it currently with our test customers. Our first drone is planned to enter the market in 2019.
