Kalibr Technopark resident LLC Bask has developed and tested unique expedition equipment

Resident of Kalibr Technopark LLC "Bask" has developed and tested a unique tent, which is designed to accommodate 12 people in difficult weather conditions of taiga, tundra and summer Polar region. The structure is easy to assemble and disassemble and is resistant to wind gusts of up to 30 metres per second. If necessary, a cooker or air conditioner can be installed in the tent.

"The main task of the technopark is to create conditions for the development of residents who present promising innovations. Such developments may be in demand among EMERCOM employees, polar explorers, geologists, teams working in mining industries," said Alexei Fursin, head of the capital's Department of Entrepreneurship and Innovative Development.

During the tests, the tent was checked for lightness - the construction in a complete set weighs no more than 67 kilograms, which is not much for a structure designed to comfortably accommodate 12 people. In addition, the experts evaluated the design in terms of tent streamlining, capacity, wind resistance, checked fabrics and seams for water resistance and abrasion resistance. They tested the features and speed of assembly and disassembly of the whole structure. The tent with a telling name Sahalin 12 has the necessary qualities for expedition equipment, in folded form it easily fits into transport, and it can be carried by two people.


The developers are satisfied with the test results. It is only possible to verify the implementation of the design parameters during the physical installation of the prototype, the installation area of which is 12 by 5 metres. The Kalibr Technopark had everything necessary for the large-scale experiment.


The first prototype of the tent and other equipment of the manufacturer will be sent to Sakhalin Island. New Russian tents are also awaited at the international Arctic station "Snezhinka". They are planned to be used for accommodation and work of specialists involved in the creation of a year-round, fully autonomous platform based on hydrogen energy.
