Expedition Systems' famous Trekker I was used in the 1986
Amazon expedition by the International Ornithological Alliance, under
the leadership of the late Gustav Oriel, to survey and record details
of the bird species that range between Lago Armana and liha Mapixari.
This expedition lasted for seven months and all computing, data collection,
report writing and expediton administration was carried out on a pair
of Expedition Systems Trekker I ruggedised personal computers. This equipment
was able to operate in jungle camps, without protection and AC power.
Power was supplied from rechargable lead-acid batteries via an Expedition
Systems electronic power convertor.
