Online Ballooning Portal

  • Ethan Harstad (Aerodyne Labs)


An online balloon flight prediction system was developed as part of a grant from Taylor University. This system is currently being extended to include tracking and data analysis components. Tracking and telemetry data will be collected by distributed ground stations and forwarded to a central server. This data is archived in a database for live display or later data analysis. The collected tracking data will also be used to continuously improve the prediction algorithms used. Collecting all these tools in one place will help to make the ballooning process more intuitive to beginners and enable more advanced applications for experienced users.
