DIGITAL SURF installed in Besançon and world No. 1 in microscopic surface analysis software launched the new version of its software Mountains 6 at the top of Makalu. 84.70 nanometers for an altitude of 8,470 meters, the infinitely small joins the infinitely large and at the same time participates in a French premiere in the Himalayas.
For 20 years, the DIGITAL SURF Mountains software has been a benchmark in the analysis and three-dimensional visualization of the world of the infinitely small. An internationally registered trademark, Mountains has established itself as the tool capable of transforming the smallest microscopic details into a visible and measurable mountain range.
Mountains version 6 has just been released. More complete and more powerful, it takes advantage in particular of advances in microcomputers with a version specially optimized for 64-bit and multicore processors. It is the optimal tool for tracking down micro and nanoparticles on the surface, and making microscopic “mountains” visible.
To launch its new version, DIGITAL SURF has bet on the alliance between the infinitely small and the infinitely large, so that both can marry their “mountains” and together reach summits.
The Bisontine company has thus decided to encourage the Makalu 2010 expedition engaged in the ascent of this summit, considered one of the most technical of the Himalayan summits, at 8,470 m above sea level on the border of Tibet and Nepal. . The Mountains 6 teams of DIGITAL SURF and the 6 mountaineers of Makalu 2010 have thus united to achieve ultimate excellence.
Mountains 6 and 6 French mountaineers in the same quest for excellence
In April 2010, the 6 mountaineers of the Mountains 6 - Makalu 2010 team set out to conquer the Himalayan summit. Bringing together great mountain specialists, including two Francs-Comtois, Sylvie Ferragu (Besançon) and Philippe Bourgine (Morbier), the expedition was one of the few to reach the top this year. In fact, in total, only about ten climbers succeeded, all expeditions combined.
The Mountains 6 - Makalu 2010 team supported by DIGITAL SURF notably made it possible to bring the first French woman to this summit. Sandrine de Choudens, a Grenoble researcher at the CNRS even exceeded the feat by reaching the top without oxygen.
