Kai  Müller is a polar guide and expedition medic, who has expertise in working in challenging environments, which would certainly faze the rest of us!

He has both military and medical backgrounds and has previously completed several tours of Afghanistan and Iraq.  However, when he moved to Norway, he then found his true calling and passion – his love for polar regions.

Kai has continued to build on his professional medical knowledge and is currently studying for a Diploma in Remote and Offshore Medicine from the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh.

Kai began talking to us last year, about his needs for connectivity, whilst working in remote areas.  If there is a medical emergency eg someone taken suddenly ill, then it is crucial to be able to communicate information such as images and data to outside authorities.  As time is of the essence, a speedy diagnosis and curative action can then be undertaken.

At the same time, the connectivity solution needs to be portable and exceptionally tough, as it must work in very exacting weather conditions such as sub-zero temperatures.

Our portable Starlink in a box is a great answer to these problems.  It will provide Kai with an internet connection, whenever he is in a remote part of the world, aiding him in his work. The addition of solar panels means the unit can be powered in the field and can be operated in extreme weather conditions.

Kai is off on an expedition in February this year, and will be taking along his portable Starlink, as part of his professional kit.  We wish him the best of luck and we look forward to hearing how it will perform, in all sorts of conditions as it accompanies him on his journey.
