For the first time ever, the PULSE allows you to monitor and see your partners heartbeats to help prioritize rescue and focus your efforts to do the greatest good for as many as possible. The PULSE is equipped with 3 antennas - for precise signal acquisition and feedback as to the distance, depth and direction of your comrades. Remember - statistically over 30% of avalanche accidents involve multiple burials; 60% of avalanche deaths occur with multiple burials and 15% of all victims are killed by the mechanical action of a slide. Make the "80/20" rule the basis for your rescue plan, practice your search and rescue response and make sure everyone in your party is packing a PULSE and the necessary rescue tools and survival gear.
Three antennas allow for easy pinpointing at short distances and deep burials.
