Project: Traveler is a high altitude balloon research project of Custom Digital Services, LLC. Based in Hutchinson, KS, Project: Traveler has been flying and chasing balloons all over the midwest since 2001.
From the beginning, education has driving factor behind the Project: Traveler group, working with elementary schools and hosting the Great Plains Super Launch and symposium in 2004, 2006, 2010, and 2014. With our extensive set of hardware, software, and tracking equipment, coupled with over ten years of experience, Custom Digital Services and Project: Traveler can help bring space into your classroom.
Log Konverter, a tool long used for creating KML map files from APRS data files, has now been updated to support arbitrary datasets from telemetry data. Telemetry contained in the comments portion of the packet can be exported to a spreadsheet.
Flight 2018b's purpose will be to test the final design of the new ArduinoTrack Flex controllers. The PCB Revision 1 has two successful flights on it, and Revision 2 is currently under construction. The launch location will be from the parking lot of the Hutchinson Regional Airport.
Flight 32 will be conducted as part of the GPSL 2016, held near Granbury, TX from the Pecan Plantation airport. Due to limited trackers from our group, we will be flying in conjunction with Paul Verhage from NearSys. Many of the flight parameters are not known due to the shared flight and unknown parachute, etc.
