The DTS can locate the object within a circumference of 50 meters with directional indication.

The details of equipments are as follows
1. BCA Bag  - 6 sets

Himalayan Rescue Association Nepal would extend our sincere thanks to BCA, Nepal Tourism Board and Minister Gyawali for providing those Snow Safety Equipments to HRA. We hope that the equipment will help us to save the lives in the Himalayas.
