The “Morgann ” by CALAMALO Aviation prototype, what’s for ?

” Morgann ” will complete the logistical support of the SEA EXPLORER PROJET
The Project SEMPRE / SEA EXPLORER CATAMARAN exist since 2013 and it is directed by no-profit cooperative.

“Morgann ” by CALAMALO Aviation will complete the logistical support of the SEA EXPLORER PROJECT. The SEMPRE / SEA EXPLORER CATAMARAN project is led since 2013 by the non-profit cooperative Marine Earth.

The SEA EXPLORER CATAMARAN, an alloy sailboat with scientific and a pedagogical mission, follows the line of these projects. Indeed, Tara Expeditions, one of  these project, is at the origin of scientific expeditions of modern sailing.

The SEA EXPLORER CATAMARAN is a platform who offers a technical assistance, a great vision of the logistic with controlled costs (thanks to the nature of our structure and the tourism scientist’s participation). This catamaran is 25 meters long. It is eco-designed, specialized in underwater acoustics and marine research *. And it will collect any data on the environment at sea. All of this program is at the entire disposition of the scientists.

The project will be designed and customize in accordance with its missions:

  •   A platform will be used for the observation of marine mammals, sea turtles, fish and marine life.
  • A laboratory of sound recording, equipped with underwater microphones and software processing, will be given to use for scientists
  • A conference room equipped with sound system and video projector.
  • An “image” department will be fully furnished with a professional HD camera for the recording and film editing. An electronic microscope will also be given to the observation of marine plankton and microorganisms.

During the campaign for the conservation of the Mediterranean. The catamaran will sail from port to port as events. The catamaran will be able to educates and organizes conferences. It will be possible to brodcast serveral documentary or information’s movie inside or outside the boat for the scientists, sponsors and local actors working in the conservation of the Mediterranean sea.

* The acoustic technology was developed in collaboration with Professor Hervé GLOTIN (head of the dynamics of the Information Unit at LSIS UMR AMU and the University of Toulon)
