HABx hardware taking form

My loyal blog readers (and you know who you are)  will have seen a mention of the HABx balloon project from an earlier posting.

I thought it was about time for an update.

The procedures documentation and hardware development is proceeding quite well now.   The HABx telemetry package is made up of a propeller microcontroller and now has working (prototype) temperature sensors, accelerometers, pressure sensors and now a GPS.    Only four (4) things to prototype now from the electronics perspective, the cameras, strobe, RF and the termination system.

The system is slowly but steadily coming together with a tethered integration ‘flight’ set for early in the new year.
