Team Description

Our team includes Aerospace MSc and PhD students of Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology.

Plan for launch

The MONSTER team will launch 2+ balloons by the end of April 2016, hosting a cutting edge radio networking experiment to demonstrate space ad-hoc communications systems.

Why did you join?

We believe that HABs can cover the gap between satellites and endurance UAVs in providing services to users in remote areas. It is time to demostrate all that can be done with balloons!
