Mechanical Systems

  • Quick Release - Mike Manes designed this device to quickly separate a payload train from the shards of a balloon immediately after the balloon bursts.

  • Packing the Parachute - After a flight save the balloon prep team hours of time and stress getting the parachute ready to fly again by properly securing it for travel.

Camera Systems

  • SamCam2 - Rotating camera housing to capture different views automatically.
