Flight Interface
Acknowledgements Capsule Design Capsule Design

Material : Extruded Polystyrene

Moisture impervious
Good shock absorbere
Low thermal conductivity (.033 W/m.K) Capsule Prototype Solving an Engineering Design Problem
: Heat Exchange Model

Challenge :

1. Avoid exchange of heat with ambiant environment (-65 C )
2. Prevent Loss of pressure from the capsule
3. Find suitable material and dimensions to meet the above two requirements
The UCO Near Space Venture is an engineering project to design, construct, launch and recover an upper atmosphere research platform Inspiration Our Payload At the heart of payload is the flight Computer
-Processes and logs data Experimental Set Up:
1)Simulate data collection
2)Choose the gauss-meter Device
3)Test the Gaussmeter Device
4)Load it and cross fingers

- Extreme Temperature
-Battery life
- Loss of payload Near Space Venture Magnetic Field Intensity Variation # The use of high altitude balloons for upper atmosphere
research is becoming highly desirable by academia,
commercial industry, and military # Current costs for rocket based launches are approximately
$10,000 per pound of payload. High altitude balloons provide
a cheaper alternative with reasonable safety factor. # First high altitude balloon Launched in 1896
-led to the discovery of Stratosphere # 244 successful launches reported in 2013 Deliverable 1 Completion of Flight Computer and Airframe Preflight Test and Ground Data Deliverable 2 - stabilizes x, y, and z axes for gaussmeter Target 60,000 ft Achieved 109600ft Deliverable 3 : Launch

Questions Safety Measures The Balloon contained Helium , Hydrogen is a cheapear option but it is flammable

Total weight of payload was less than 12pounds, Individual parts less than 2 pounds as required by FAA

Launch was registered with FAA
all pilots in Oklahoma Airspace had info

Anyone working in the shop(s) as always accompanied by atleast 1 more person as required by our department of Engineering and Physics Conclusion Onboard Electronics Scope Atmospheric Parameters Tracking and recovery Video
