A CATEX (Explosive Transport Cable) is a cable transport system installed on concrete foundations to support the pylons and cables. The system is controlled by
pyrotechnicians from the drive station.

It is composed of:

A loop of cable drawing a route that traverses different avalanche zones. This cable can move in both directions.
Pylons and line equipment that support and guide the cable.
A drive station that allows the cable to move the explosive charges toward their blasting point, along with an automaton for positioning the charges according to the pyrotechnicians’ choice.
