high altitude balloon program

The high altitude balloon team was formed in the month of April 2019 at The Vimana, with a vision of launching a series of free float balloons carrying distinguished payloads.

We aim to provide a platform for a variety of payloads, to conduct experiments in near-space regions.

Our program is aimed to launch a series of free-float High Altitude Balloons to altitudes of up to 15 to 20 km with stabilized payload along with a reliable communication and navigation system. The balloons are launched with an intention to provide a platform for a variety of payloads, to conduct experiments in near-space regions. This project is intended to participate in the Global Space Challenge 2020

GOALS

  • Build a payload with a very good communication system and tracking system

  • The best platform for students or researchers to test their scientific payload

  • An optimized payload airframe which is stabilized with respect to wind currents and also has minimum weight and drag.

BENEFITS 

  • A stabilized payload with respect to pendulum motion and yaw axis rotation.

  • Can reach very critical environmental conditions without much cost involved in compared to lab facilities available

  • An amazing opportunity for high school and university students, professors, researchers, and industries to conduct their experiments.
