The prototype of “Morgann” by CALAMALO Aviation, what will it be used for?
Indeed, “Morgann” will make it possible to complete logistical support for PROJET SEA EXPLORER
Indeed the SEMPRE / SEA EXPLORER CATAMARAN project has been managed since 2013 by the non-profit cooperative: ~ Terre Marine ~
Thus, the SEA EXPLORER CATAMARAN is an alloy sailboat with a scientific and educational mission.
Indeed, among its projects: Tara Expeditions, during this mission, we launched scientific expeditions of contemporary sailing.
Available to scientific teams, the SEA EXPLORER CATAMARAN is a support platform. This offers state-of-the-art technical logistics at well-controlled costs (thanks to the nature of our structure and participatory scientific tourism in place). This eco-designed 25-meter catamaran. He specializes in submarines and acoustic marine research *. It will collect all types of data on the environment at sea.
SEA EXPLORER CATAMARAN will be fitted out in accordance with its missions:
- A platform will be used for observing marine mammals, sea turtles, fish and marine life.
- Scientists will be able to use a sound recording laboratory, which will be fitted with underwater microphones and processing software.
- A conference room that will be equipped with a sound system and video projector.
- An “image” department that will be equipped with a professional HD camera for film recording and editing.
- We will give an electron microscope to the observation of marine plankton and microorganism.
During the Mediterranean conservation campaign :
The catamaran will sail from port to port depending on the events. This will indeed be able to host conferences. During which scientists, sponsors and local actors. They will be able to work for the conservation of the Mediterranean Sea. They will be able to broadcast presentation films. These films will be accessible inside and outside the boat.
* We developed the acoustic technology in collaboration with Professor Hervé GLOTIN. (head of the dynamics of the Information Unit at the UMR LSIS of the UMA and the University of Toulon)
