Nevada BalloonSat Equipment

It's good to think about the equipment that you're going to use before you go out and buy it.  Plan out how you are going to put everything you are going to need to assemble your working prototype.  Starting a ballooning program is a costly endeavor.  It will cost several thousand dollars to start up and as we found mistakes can cost quite a bit as well.  These pages will hopefully guide you toward selecting your equipment and give you a way to follow our balloon program.

The pages should include technical information about products we've used.  Links to places we've found to buy them.  There may be better selections out there than what we've used, but this is the best that we have found for our needs.
