Abstract

The purpose of this research project is to create a comprehensive flight plan for a high altitude balloon flight. Using previous data from Weber State's HARBOR Program, the Utah State Get Away Special Team will create a flight plan for the CubeSat project, GASPACS. The GAS Team's High Altitude Balloon Payload for CubeSat Aeroboom Development, HAPCAD, will further validate the original inflatable boom design on GASPACS. Using SAS, flight information from HARBOR'S multisensory array will be analyzed for relevant altitude, pressure, temperature and real time clock sensors. It is essential for the GASPACS payload to deploy in a pressure lower than the internal boom pressure for experimental success. In order to determine the most effective window of time to deploy the GASPACS payload, parameters of altitude, pressure, and length of time must be determined and met. The HAPCAD flight is scheduled to launch April 11, 2015.
