Sir Ranulph Fiennes is attempting to break world records and be the first explorer to cross Antarctica and reach the South Pole during the bitter winter months.
His expedition team comprises explorers, scientists and high tech scientific equipment – which is where Architen Landrell’s fabric fits in!
The team will be carrying with them all necessary equipment to carry out tests and readings for scientists providing data on marine life, oceanography and meteorology. This scientific activity will all take place in the science caboose, whilst team members will generally reside in living caboose.
Vital to the expedition, both caboose need to be transported somehow, and so two D6N Caterpillar bulldozers are being used. A technologically advanced fabric cover has been designed to be rapidly and easily deployed from the top of the bulldozer and provide an insulated zone with a potential air temperature difference of over 70°C between outside and inside the ‘giant sleeping bag’.
