More than an Audible: Larsen & Brusgaard

Mads Larsen and Niels Brusgaard were RW pioneers on the weekends but worked as mechanical and electronic engineers during the week. Seeing the issue of dangerously low (sometimes fatal) deployment altitudes, Mads and Niels decided to fix the problem. Their vision was to create an audible alarm which would beep at a preset altitude, alerting a skydiver it was time to turn and track away. They took their grandmother’s wall barometer, attached a switch and a loudspeaker and the first blueprint for the DYTTER™ was born. Jumpers loved it and before long a new company with an intricate name was born: Larsen & Brusgaard. The rest, as they say, is history!
