The Scientific Ballooning Technologies Workshop website is being rebuilt for the 2017 workshop. To access the 2016 workshop program please click on Past Events

The Scientific Ballooning Technologies Workshop will be held in the Minneapolis campus of the University of Minnesota/Twin Cities. It is a 2.5 day workshop during the week of May 15, 2017.

The workshop scope includes (but is not limited to) gondola design, experiment-wide data acquisition and control systems, attitude control systems, on-board control software both for the attitude control and for the entire experiment, on-board computer hardware, power systems, telemetry systems, and thermal design and control.

We would like to make the workshop particularly appealing for those who are designing and building hardware, and those interested in synergies between the activities of different ballooning groups. It is intended to provide an opportunity for all hands-on ballooning practitioners, from graduate students to senior investigators, to discuss the technologies we are all using to carry out our scientific investigations.
