CAMPAIGN

To capture footage in temperature environments as low as -65°C with less than 0.3% normal air pressure, we had to extensively modify a cutting-edge 8K RED Helium camera to operate under extreme conditions.

We manufactured our own dual-channel thermal control system, modifying the camera’s internal heatsink to replace the fans with a water cooling system and implementing an intelligent power cycling process which used the camera’s own heat generation to regulate temperature throughout the flight.

Launched from continental Europe to capture a dramatic city coastline, we timed our flights to coincide with the sun setting over the ocean.
