Short description: It is difficult to take measurements with weather balloons because they are exposed to wind gusts and turbulence during the flight. So far, a lot of fuel has to be carried to stabilize large balloon nacelles, which takes up a large part of the payload. Our system is a lot lighter than the conventional version, therefore it offers enormous cost savings and is also more environmentally friendly.
