Planning has started.
This is a Colorado Space Grant Consortium Demosat flight. We are going to try to launch one 3000g balloon, but if the weather (cloud cover) does not cooperate, we will be prepared to launch two 1200g balloons that will not be limited by cloud cover. Three payload plans are attached below, two for EOSS-226 covering both options, and one payload plan for EOSS-227 (if needed). The launch is scheduled for our Windsor launch site.
Weather and flight path predictions are posted here. These will be updated starting one week before the launch and will be updated daily. A number of usefull links are collected here. This site has several links that will be active only during the flight and several links that show predictions and weather observations that are relevant to this flight.
This will either be a 3000g balloon with all of the CSGC Demosats (payload plan posted below) or one of two 1200g balloons that can be flow through cloud cover (1200g balloon payload plan posted here).
This is an optional 1200g balloon that will carry half of the CSGC Demostats is we fly two balloons through cloud cover that prevents flying one 3000g balloon.
