Abstract:
Every year, the HASP program offers an opportunity for students to design, build and test a payload for stratospheric balloon flight. After a successful mission at end-of-summer 2015, IIT’s AIAA chapter is submitting a new application for the 2016 mission. Our proposal includes a main engineering experiment: a communication system between our payload and a ground-station. Learning from last year’s mission, we also designed a new version of the same structure. Adding some elements into the structure, we came up with a more robust and reliable frame. Furthermore, we chose to implement a compartment to both secure locate all electronics boards but also allow an easy access to any of their components (in case a replacement is needed). We hope to have found a structure to be used in our future missions. With the implementation of this new structural design and an autonomous communication, we hope to get closer to a CubeSat mission—our long-term goal.
