2021 Scientific Ballooning Technologies Workshop

The 2021 Scientific Ballooning Technologies Workshop will take place during the week of May 10 with the majority of sessions between May 12 and May 14.

Following on the successful format of the last three workshops, the scope includes (but is not limited to) gondola design, experiment-wide data acquisition and control systems, attitude control systems, on-board control software both for the attitude control and for the entire experiment, on-board computer hardware, power systems, telemetry systems, and thermal design and control.

This workshop should be particularly appealing for those who are designing and building hardware, and those interested in synergies between the activities of different ballooning groups. It is intended to provide an opportunity for all hands-on ballooning practitioners, from graduate students to senior investigators, to discuss the technologies we are all using to carry out our scientific investigations.


The workshop will be held virtually in Zoom and Gathertown. To access the workshop consult the Instructions page.
