    MA-12 is a new class of military altimeter that has been a long time coming. In response to many military end-user requests, we have rolled the best of our military and sport instrument design features into one new product to start a new chapter in Military Free Fall equipment.

    MA-12 is significantly smaller and lighter than other military altimeters, creating an extremely low-profile equipment footprint. Four screw holes in the bottom shell allow this newcomer to be mounted in the familiar left wrist location (using the wrist bracket and strap provided with each unit), or on a navigation board. The display can be flipped to allow easy access to buttons and USB port when mounted with other components.

    High visibility altitude reference information is provided to the jumper through a backlit digital display with large easy to read numbers. The on-board electronic pressure sensor delivers an extremely high level of accuracy up to 40,000 FT MSL at temperatures down to -40 degrees. The wrist mount bracket includes a slot for a commonly available chemical hand warmer to provide heat to the LCD screen.

    The USB rechargeable Lithium Ion battery provides long battery life and ease of use - no batteries to replace. The ruggedized machined aluminum case and protective lens will tolerate a 1 meter drop onto concrete, and MA-12 is waterproof for 6 FT for up to 1 hour.

    MA-12's most distinguishing feature? It's programmable! For end-users accustomed to our mechanical altimeters like MA2-30, MA-12 can be set to zero for training operations or set using a simple manual offset technique. For those familiar with MA-10UD, MA-12 is much easier to program from the device itself and the digital display ensures precise user input. This device has two modes that can be set in-flight for real-world or tactical training operations.

    Please see the MA-12 Product Page and MA-12 Discussion Forum for more detailed information.

    Our website has always been focused on providing information. The product pages do a good job of facilitating informed gear purchase decisions, and the forums serve as an information storehouse with the added benefit of two-way communication with our followers.

    We recently turned on the blogging function of our website in the hope that the information flow will increase. At the very least, when one of us has an important string of thoughts there is a place we can write them down and share them with others.

    Effective today we will no longer accept RMAs for Neptune or Neptune2. As an alternative we will offer any Neptune or Neptune2 owner a trade-up to Atlas or N3 . . . send us your Neptune (in any condition) and an Atlas or N3 is yours for $100 USD off the Retail Price.

    For a limited time only, Neptune or Neptune2 trade-up customers will receive a free Elastic Wrist Band Mount with their new device. This offer expires on 12/31/2015.

    Help us welcome our new sport product *Atlas* to the skydiving world!

    Atlas has all the proven functionality of N3 with reduced edges and corners, along with a ruggedized machined aluminum case. USB charging and data transfer has been improved through an upgraded Micro USB port.

    Atlas fits in our current hard mount for N3; an elastic wrist band mount specifically for this instrument is expected shortly.

    Atlas is available in Red, Blue, Silver, and Black through Alti-2 Dealers

    Today we bid a fond farewell to our old friend MA2-30, which has been discontinued and removed from our product line. Declining availability and increasing cost of precision mechanical parts has made further production cost-prohibitive; quite frankly we would be forced to put MA2-30 at a price point where demand dwindles to a level unworthy of the respect this solid performer deserves.

    MA2-30 has been in use by military forces worldwide since 1968, and there are hundreds in use in the sport world as well. Alti-2 carried on production of this quality instrument when it acquired the manufacturing rights from SSE, Inc. in 1999. Other than small improvements to the wrist strap and the addition of the chemical light attachment the original design has remained largely unchanged.

    The final MA2-30 to come off our assembly line here in DeLand, FL will not leave our Production floor ? it will be displayed in a shadow box as a reminder of its significant part in our design heraldry.

    Another model in the series, MA3-30, will be also be discontinued when our limited existing supply of parts is exhausted. Alti-2 will continue to repair and service both models briefly subject to availability of parts.

    MA2-30?s sister product is the more robust MA-10, in production since 2007, which features an electronic stepper motor, highly accurate pressure sensors, backlit display available in feet or meters, two dial face scale options, and in-flight programming using the device itself or the MA-10UD Transmitter.

    Our next generation military altimeter is MA-12. Smaller and lighter than MA-10, this new instrument features an electronic pressure sensor, digital display, waterproof ruggedized case, universal mounting capability, and is programmable in-flight.
