  1. recco

    RECCO, often referred to as the RECCO System, is a technology used in search and rescue operations aimed at quickly locating missing individuals within outdoor environments, particularly in cases of avalanches. The system consists of two components – a RECCO detector and a RECCO reflector. The detector emits a radar signal, while the reflector, which is worn or incorporated into clothing or equipment, reflects the signal back to the detector. This enables rescue teams equipped with the detector to locate and pinpoint the position of the reflector, aiding in the search and rescue process. The RECCO System is commonly used in skiing, snowboarding, and mountaineering to enhance safety and improve the chances of successful rescues.
