Athletes competing in a rare and massive record freefall attempt will use Heads Up technology from SportVue.

The world’s top skydiving athletes will use SportVueTM Heads Up technology when they take part in a rare and massive skydiving record attempt in Thailand, January 24 – February 6, 2006.

The jumpers will wear Alti-2’s much-anticipated Altimaster Titan, incorporating SportVueTM Heads Up technology, as they attempt to set a the record for the world’s largest freefall. 400 skydivers linked together will jump from thousands of feet above Udon Thani, Thailand , at the Royal Sky Celebration. Key jumpers will use Titan to show freefall speed of the formation. The event will also mark the launch of the Altimaster Titan with SportVueTM skydiving system; Alti-2 will be taking orders at the event.

The new product will be a pairing of the popular Altimaster data systems for skydivers and Motion Research Corporation's patented SportVueTM Heads Up display. The system gives skydivers a view of their altitude, speed, and other critical information in a helmet-mounted personal display focused at infinity.

SportVueTM is a trademark of Motion Research Corporation, an information display and monitoring solutions provider for various applications such as sports and industrial applications.
