High Altitude Balloons development
Zephyros mission has its origins in 2019, pursuing the aim of becoming the first high altitude balloon with zero pressure technology that is able to remain at a great altitude for an extended period of time.
This concept builds up on the features of the stratospheric balloons, intended as a test platform for experiments in near-space conditions and earth observation.
Key aspects for the continued development of this HAB-based platform are versatility, reliability, sturdiness and efficiency. At international level Zephyros aims to participate in the next editions of the Global Space Balloon Challenge, a competition in which different student associations from around the globe compete with their HAB projects for the prizes Best Mission Design and Best Experiment.
