Project Summary Project Information
Space Farmers logo

The HABIP-BioX project will build on previous years of High Altitude Balloon Instrumentation Platform (HABIP) projects to develop a platform for a month long zero pressure balloon flight. New this year the team will also develop a BioX platform to support and monitor plant growth in a near space environment. Working together with Dr. Dorin Patru and RIT's Biology department this project aims to provide a robust framework for high altitude plant growth experiments and a starting point for a future cubesat oriented platform for similar experiments.

This years team will focus on establishing communications between the HABIP and ground, development of the BioX cell, software/hardware refinement of previously designed systems and integration of all systems into a flight ready payload.
