The end of April 2007 saw the return to their native soil of the 35 scientists who had set to sea the previous August for an eight-month research trip around the globe. The aim of the expedition was to gain new insights into climate change as well as investigate marine animal and plant life.
In addition to being documented in print, the activities of the researchers were captured in audio and video recordings by accompanying journalists and published on a Website. This was designed primarily to inspire and foster the enthusiasm of young people for natural science. Also on board were six SolarisTM weatherproof high-speed dome cameras from Siemens Building Technologies which kept a close watch on the deck.
The flexibility of the SolarisTM domes made them ideal for the Galathea 3 expedition. Thanks to an integrated 26x zoom lens with infrared filter, they delivered optimum daylight color pictures even in difficult conditions. During the night, infrared lighting allowed the highly sensitive Solaris cameras to produce pin-sharp black and white images.
All the components required for the power supply, video and telemetry data, as well as the alarm and power cables, are housed in a tidy weatherproof casing.
