WINNIPEG, Manitoba, March 19, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Solara Remote Data Delivery Incorporated announced today the support of the impossible2Possible Siberian Express for Water. Two Canadian runners, i2p founder Ray Zahab and Kevin Vallely, i2p Ambassador, will run 65km to 70km per day for the entire 650km journey across frozen Lake Baikal. Lake Baikal is located in Siberia and is the deepest lake in the world. Solara is providing emergency location, day to day tracking and backup text communication with the Field Tracker 2100, an interactive text messenger with automatic GPS tracking and 2-way communications anywhere on earth. The Solara Field Tracker 2100 operates over the Iridium satellite network, meaning this handheld device with on-screen interactive text messaging and GPS tracking provides users with truly global coverage.

"The Field Tracker 2100 is the communications link that provides safety and peace of mind to anyone on a global basis," said Tom Tessier, President of Solara Remote Data Delivery Incorporated. "We are excited to provide Ray Zahab and Kevin Vallely with a high reliability communicator with fast 2-way communications, built for the toughest field conditions."

Able to take on rugged operations like extreme cold of western Siberia, the Field Tracker 2100 can take the rattle and roll of the expedition's sled and operates right down to -40C, including the interactive colour display. This provides reliability for both routine updates of the expedition's positions and signalling in the event of an emergency.

About the Siberian Express for Water

The Siberian Express for Water journey is the latest expedition for impossible2Possible, a non-profit organization founded by Zahab that uses adventure as a medium to educate, inspire, and empower tomorrow's leaders. Lake Baikal contains about 20 percent of the world's surface fresh water and is the world's largest freshwater lake by volume. By running across the ice-covered surface of one of the earth's most treasured and fragile lakes, Zahab and Vallely hope to teach students about the history, chemistry, biology, culture, and the central role clean drinking water has played in all cultures and civilizations.
