he death of a friend motivated Mitch- ell Hamline student Caleb Carr to start his own company.
“I didn’t want to be an executive initially,” Carr says. “But I want to solve this problem and, more importantly, save lives in the fu- ture.”
 e problem Carr set out to solve is one that vexes helicopter crews working to save people in windy conditions. In 2009, Carr was on a search and rescue mission in Oregon. His friend, a fellow rescue team member, suf- fered a heart attack and required an immedi- ate medical evacuation. A Black Hawk heli- copter crew from the Oregon National Guard attempted to save him, but high winds pre- vented the medivac crew from safely lowering a rescue basket through the thick canopy of trees.  e National Guard had to call o  the mission, and Carr’s friend died.
