Abstract:
The payload is designed to gain a better understanding of the thermal effects that a high-altitude balloon experiences during flight. A thermal imaging camera will be used to measure the balloon surface temperature and study the temperature gradients across the balloon. This work builds upon previous Deep Space Test Bed and HASP 2006 flights and the imaging acquired here will be compared with the results from the previous flights.
