Superpressure Balloon Flight Path Prediction


Sample flight path prediction

This project will serve to provide our Aerospace Engineering Club as well as other superpressure balloon launching teams to predict the possible flight paths for a balloon launched at a certain date and time. This application will take the type of balloon, payload weight, and maximum altitude into account. This ttol is different from any currently publically available tool in that is allows for the prediction of long-term superpressure balloons made of light plastic instead of latex like current simulators.
