The Norway Polar Bear Expedition - Expedition Equipment

Expedition Technology

On The Norway Polar Bear Expedition we are searching for polar bears in the frozen Arctic around Norway's Svalbard island archipeligo by the Arctic Ocean. Expeditions require various types of electronic equipment. The electronics on our ship, MS Expedition, inlcudes: radar, sonar. radio, and satellite communications.

Here is the electronic technology that we are using on our expedition.

Camera Technology

- A special camera for taking super wide-angle HD digital video.



- A special camera for taking HD digital video.




- A professional digital still

NIKON CAMERA LENSES - Nikon cameras have different lenses that can be changed for taking picture of very large things, very small things, things far away or things very close up.

Navigation Technology

GPS - This instrument uses navigation satellites (Global Positioning Satellites), circleing the earth, to determine our exact position on the earth. Using position data this gps device maps our route, shows us the direction we are heading, our speed, how long until we reach our final destination, and who to return to our staring point. This gps device allows us to store location positions in its memory so we can return to locations again.

Computer Technology

LAPTOP COMPUTER - Our laptop computer alllows you to join us on our underwater expeditions. On our expedition we use our computer to store and process the photos and videos we take, draw pictures, write our journals, record our data, use it as a calculator, send and receive email, design our and manage this web site and surf the web. (Note: In the high Arctic Internet is hard or impossible to access.)

EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE - Our laptop internal hard drive is not large enough to hold all our photos so this gives us extra storage space for our digital photos and videos.
