About the Edition

This study evaluates the potential of high altitude balloons as surveillance platforms. It begins with the mobile Theater Ballistic Missile (TBM) detection problem encountered during the Persian Gulf War of 1990-1991 and it describes a possible scenario using high altitude balloon surveillance systems to locate TBM"s accurately enough for effective engagement by strike assets. It presents the history and military use of balloons, and it describes the current state of technology of differing balloon types. Atmospheric circulation impacting balloon drift is presented along with a description of available atmospheric models. Trajectory prediction programs are reviewed and a revised program is used to conduct a simulation of balloon trajectories. Balloon locations at fixed times are analyzed for variability. The study concludes that high altitude balloons have some potential for use as surveillance platforms for limited periods of time.

  Unfortunately, as the studies continued to support the remarkable benefits of high altitude training, the technology simply wasn’t keeping pace with the research. Until now. A U.S. based company called Altitude International is quickly gaining momentum as a world leader in high performance integrated altitude chambers. Vehicle Drift Analysis using Functional Simulation and Statistical Tools The lateral drift of a vehicle while driving straight ahead has been a major concern of the OEMs on the South America market. Due to its natural way to evaluate and also to different types of roads on the market (roads with different types of bank angle), a.

For mining machines, measuring vibrations is an important way to detect early failure features [].It requires the measuring system to provide a high sample rate in order to analyze the high-order modes up to kHz [].However, the measuring system also needs to have a low-drift characteristic in order to detect the low-frequency signal, since the mining machines usually work.

In the present design, the major goal is keeping the volume constant, resulting in a stable altitude for the zero-pressure balloon in the typical real flight model of N.

28 Therefore, the following results demonstrate the behavior of a new integrated system at floating altitude level, i.e., the extra lift gas inside the zero-pressure Cited by: 8.

Balloon Ascent: 3-D Simulation Tool for the Ascent and Float of High-Altitude Balloons The BalloonAscent balloon flight simulation code represents a from-scratch development using Visual Basic 5 as the software platform. The simulation code is a transient analysis of balloon flight, predicting the skin and gas temperatures along with the 3-D position and velocity in a time and spatially.

Based on the models, a simulation program is developed. The thermal performances of a super pressure balloon are simulated. The influence of film radiation property and clouds on balloon thermal behaviors is discussed in detail.

The results are helpful for the design and operate of safe and reliable high altitude scientific balloons. Balloons drift o if winds are high during the ight.

To restrict the drift to another state or territory, we have designed two FTUs for the balloon system. One system is based on a timer circuit and placed below the parachute (Fig.

2) and the other { Arduino-based system with a GPS { is placed inside the main pay-load box. And by using the reverse Monte-Carlo method, the paper calculated the scattering radiance of the high-altitude balloon the ground-based probe point received.

After calculating the ratio of the signal to the noise, the paper made the analysis of the visibility of the target.

When Per Lindstrand flew his Stratoquest to an altitude of 65, feet, he set the world record for the greatest height ever reached by a human in a hot-air balloon.

His flight also piqued the interest of military and intelligence officials seeking near -space technology solutions that could provide persistent surveillance. High altitude zero pressure balloons are conventional way of scientific gas balloons. Control mechanism is one of the key issues to design safe and reliable long endurance high altitude balloons.

Drift analysis is among the most powerful theoretical tools available for estimating the optimisation time of meta-heuristics. Informally, it shows how the challenging problem of predicting the long-term behaviour of a meta-heuristic can be reduced to the often trivial problem of describing how the state of the heuristic changes during one iteration.

High altitude balloons are an inexpensive method of reaching altitudes from as low as 10 km to as high as over 50 km [1]. Nowadays, two main types of high ensure the limitation of drift and will decrease the cost of recovery of such payloads. The entire 6 DOF will papers will be devoted to detailed analysis.

spheric profiles, balloon drift must be quantified. [11] While we focus here on balloon drift, there is also a temporal aspect of some of the issues outlined above. Radiosondes take 1 to 2 h to reach their final heights, but Figure 1.

The balloons float passively along the Earth's wind currents. For actuation, a balloon can change its altitude to enter a different wind current and move in a different direction.We have modelled the hard X-ray background expected for a high-altitude balloon flight of the Energetic X-ray Telescope Experiment (EXITE2), an imaging phoswich detector/telescope for the keV energy range.

Photon and neutron-induced contributions to the background are considered.
