Collaboration 1

20th April 2012

On Friday I assisted students from South Cheshire College. The students had designed simple camera payloads to launch and track using Smart tracker enhanced gps tracker. I assisted the launch by inflating one of the 1200g balloons and loaning a SPOT tracker.

On the day surface winds were light but it poured with rain. I got soaked and chilled to the bone fillign the balloon. Flight 2 of the day took my Spot tracker. The tracker performed well though produced 2 rough data points.

Spot Tracking. Are there two rough data points or did something very strange happen on assent?

Thankfully the rain abated during chase and recovery.
