Abstract: This paper presents a brief introduction of the instruments, the organizing and the experiences gained by the road authorites in Norway to control avalanches by the means of radio beams. After a certain period of testing the experiences are positive and so are the recommendations to implement the system when considering specific conditions. The system might be an alternative to establish conventional expensive constructions.
