Since 2017, 23 products have been tested at the Czech J.G. Mendel Scientific Station in Antarctica, more than 170 tests have been conducted and a total of 11 licences have been granted to use the trademark Tested in Antarctica, which is administered by the Technology Transfer Office of MU. The consumer testing will continue this year and manufacturers can look forward to valuable feedback from the polar explorers themselves.

This time, members of the scientific expedition will be taking EquiRay products with them as a vehicle to test SUNFIBRE® technology from SCILIF Ltd, a unique fibre optic active illumination system. Protection against the elements will be provided to the polar explorers by Svarog socks from NORTHMAN OUTDOOR s.r.o.

Pavel Kapler, the manager of the Czech Antarctic Research Programme, will reveal interesting facts about the expedition in a report by Studio 6 (at 12:45) in the Czech language.
