Started in 2005, HAPB is an unmanned high altitude balloon experiment platform. The primary mission is to design reliable near space imaging instrumentation and innovative control systems that can be used to further our understanding of planetary atmosphere, global weather and climate patterns.  Each mission has brought about new ideas and challenges that have resulted in more efficient designs and learning experiences.
