Nautilus is a team of aeronautical engineering students with a common passion for aerospace and environmental subjects, using High Altitude Balloons you can collect data of gas concentrations in the atmosphere and their variation. The main idea of this project is to collect information about temperature and gas concentration, more specifically hydrogen concentration, in high altitudes whit the help of a High Altitude Balloon.
The team is going to do this with the help of a LinkOne board, mq-8 and temperature sensors, and a GPS. First of all programming the LinkOne board to make it capable of reading and sending the information that the sensor connected to it will send; this board is the same as the sensor and the GPS which are going to be properly put into a capsule that is going to be connected to a High Altitude Ballon. This ballon will be pumped up with a 99% concentrated helium gas and launched in a proper zone in Colombia to collect real and useful information to determine the levels of gas concentration and temperature in the atmosphere of some parts of the complicated geography of Colombia. Secondly the board will have a GPS equipment that will help with the location of the balloon while the ascend time, and the final location when the capsule return to the ground.
