April 17th Flight


We are going to launch our balloon for Global Space Balloon Challenge on April 17th. Sue to some software issue we couldn’t test all the new modules. Only the new and improved OBC (On-Board Computer) module will fly.

We will use the communication modul and power supply unit of the previous flight.

We will test the improved Integrated Camera System which will take low resolution, wide angle pictures that can be sent back via radio during flight.

There will be a standalone high resolution camera which will be controlled by the OBC. The high resolution pictures will be available after recovery.


Actual prediction for the launch
