Everything you need in one place to get started on your High altitude ballooning adventure! Ideal for students, hobbyists, and anyone who loves exploring the edge of space!
High tech sensors and GPS to help gather data and communicate with your payload in real time.
The flight computer uses a Temperature Pressure Sensor that reads temperatures as low as -40 C / -85 F and pressures as low as 10 mBar / 2000 mbar. It also measures relative humidity with high accuracy. These sensors allow you to study the atmospheric conditions at different altitudes and compare them with ground measurements, and it has UART interface to integrate extra modules for customization.
Our basic flight computer includes a 915 MHz ISM Band radio module that allows you to send, receive, and stream 5 kBps data from your payload in real time. You can use it to monitor your sensor readings, adjust your settings, send commands, or receive messages from your payload. The radio module has a range of 240 miles and can handle highly sophisticated and scientific weather balloon launches. On top of that, other balloons can connect with each other to help extend the range!
Our equipment is both durable and reusable! It has an internal heater to keep the sensors from freezing up, and a durable case to protect the internal mechanisms. No need to buy new equipment for every launch!
Our software is compatible with nearly every device. It's compatible with Windows, Mac, Linux, and Android operating systems.
One of the best choices for communication and receiving data with your payload!
Much like the flight computer, basis ground station includes a 915 MHz ISM Band radio module that allows you to send, receive, and stream 5 kBps data from your payload to your device in real time. You can use it to monitor your sensor readings, adjust your settings, send commands, or receive messages from your payload to your device. The radio module has a range of 240 miles and can handle highly sophisticated and scientific weather balloon launches. On top of that, other balloons can connect with each other to help extend the range!
Our ground station design has gone through several iterations to provide you with the best designs in the industry.
Easily tell the status of your ground stations with simple but effective lights.
Not only can it interact with other balloons to extend the range, but it can also connect with more than one balloon for several spontaneous balloon launches. No need to have a different receiver for each balloon!
The ground station easily connects to almost any device with a USB connection. A easy and painless way to both analyze and upload your data in real time.
Safely and reliably receive your package from your balloon with our well-designed parachute!
We offer four different sizes for your payload needs. We have 36-, 48-, 60-, and 72-inch-wide parachutes to fit your payload needs.
Our parachute has a well-designed outline with a drag coefficient of 1.5 to 2.2 Cd for stable descent, a 10% spill hole to reduce oscillation and prevent inversion, a swivel at the bottom to prevent tangling, and a hole at the top to attach your balloon. The design is compatible with most loads and is easily attachable.
Enjoy the convenience of our live tracking software! It allows you to monitor your balloon's location and altitude in real time!
With our software, you also have the option to remotely configure your balloon's settings and commands during the flight.
Don 't worry if your balloon goes off course. We have a live landing prediction feature that helps you estimate and locate where your balloon will land.
Our flight computers are equipped with GPS software to help you find and retrieve your payload. You don 't have to guess where it landed!
With our software, not only can you track and view live data, it is organized in such a way to help display, show, and analyze the data collected in easy to understand graphs and tables.
