Surveillance Balloon Package
A senior Penn State Altoona Electro-Mechanical Engineering Technology project presentation by students Alexander Cairns, Lucas Fox, and Liam Steward.
The goal of this project is to use commercial-off-the-shelf materials to design and construct a surveillance package that completes various tasks. The package must autonomously drop ribbons at specific altitudes above ground level, record temperature, and pressure readings, record images at a specific rate, and transmit all of the recorded data to a ground station.
This project is sponsored by Lockheed Martin.
