Since 1972 PIEPS deals with the development and manufacturing of avalanche beacons. The classical analog devices were developed through the years to the state of the art. The availability of digital components enabled PIEPS to change from the analog technology to the DSP technology. The launch of the PIEPS DSP in 2003 was the breakthrough on the international market. In an emergency only one thingcounts: unconditional, hands-on reliability! To live up to this challenge, PIEPS collaborates with mountain guides, mountain rescue teams, ski instructors and scientists during product development. When it comes to manufacturing and developing mountaineering equipment, their professional know-how as well as 30 years of experience in the development and manufacture of avalanche search beacons ensures the quality of our PREMIUM ALPINE PERFORMANCE products.
