OVERVIEW SENIOR TEAM PROJECT 2013-2014WRIGHT STATE UNIVERSITY HIGH ALTITUDE BALLOON • Project Scope • Objective • Key Capabilities • APRS & GPS • High Altitude Balloon Program • Background • Launch and recovery • Solution • 5 Phases • Divergence from Specifications • Conclusion Bach le Cullen Naser Husain Mohammad Hassan

  3. Project Scope • Objective SENIOR TEAM PROJECT 2013-2014WRIGHT STATE UNIVERSITY HIGH ALTITUDE BALLOON • Automatically track High Altitude Balloon • Use existing antennas and control system • APRS data from balloon and/or internet (APRS-IS) Bach le Cullen Naser Husain Mohammad Hassan

  4. Project Scope • Key Capabilities SENIOR TEAM PROJECT 2013-2014WRIGHT STATE UNIVERSITY HIGH ALTITUDE BALLOON • Real time tracking using GPS information extracted from the balloon APRS-IS packet • Real time data acquisition of: • Slow Scan TV (SSTV) on select flights • Analog Amateur TV (ATV) on select flights • Secondary gateway for APRS-IS Bach le Cullen Naser Husain Mohammad Hassan

  5. Project Scope • APRS & GPS SENIOR TEAM PROJECT 2013-2014WRIGHT STATE UNIVERSITY HIGH ALTITUDE BALLOON • Automatic Position Reporting System (APRS) • AX.25 Packet Radio AFSK on 2 meters FM (Pos Frame) • # of Satellites Tracked • GPS Quality • Temperature • Battery Voltage • Altitude (Feet) • Speed (Knots) • Heading (Degrees) • Longitude (GPS module) • Latitude (GPS module) Bach le Cullen Naser Husain Mohammad Hassan

  6. Project Scope • High Altitude Balloon Program - Background SENIOR TEAM PROJECT 2013-2014WRIGHT STATE UNIVERSITY HIGH ALTITUDE BALLOON • Started near-space exploration with the Temperature Satellite project in 2003 • Initiated by advisers, Kumar Yelamarthi and Ruby Mawasha • Funding obtained from the Ohio Space Grant Consortium • Freshman presented this project at a NASA meeting • Received outstanding feedback. • Wright State University decided to move forward in the area of near-space exploration. • The High Altitude Balloon team (HIBAL) was initiated in 2005 • Advisers - Joseph C. Slater, J. Mitch Wolff, John Wu and Ruby Mawasha • Funding obtained from the Ohio Space Grant Consortium. • Major goal: • Launch two senior design experiments each year • Growing sophistication and technology demonstration each time.
