The prototype, which was coordinated by lecturer Bernat Codina from the Department of Astronomy and Meteorology and developed by Andriy Lyasota, a Russian aeronautical engineer, allows sending data through a Wi-Fi connection to the monitoring and recording unit located on land. The sensors module also has position and anti-collision lights that allow keeping the balloon suspended in the air permanently. The prototype balloon is three meters long and its shape is similar to a saddled seabream. Thanks to this design it can withstand winds of up to 150 km/h and reach a height of 150 meters by means of a cable that holds 600 kilos. Researchers from UB created a real prototype of the system in the first phase of the project, and the first flight and data collection tests have been very promising. Lecturer Bernat Codina explains its characteristics: “Current technology has allow...
