CNES* KASA 2016 is a French balloon campaign in which we will be launching two balloons between 25 August and 3 September.
The mission has two objectives:
- To qualify CNES' NOSYCA system (New Operational System for the Control of Aerostats - a new standard for balloon flights) to our specially developed NIMA system (NOSYCA Integration of Multipurpose Antenna).
- To perform two scientific flights, CLIMATE and BANA.
Carbon dioxide, methane and water in the atmosphere will be measured. The experiments will be conducted by universities from France and Canada.
