CIVILIAN/ ENTHUSIAST BALLOONS (HAB)

NEAR SPACE PHOTOGRAPHY

HEAVY PAYLOAD SOUNDING BALLOONS

Quick Resources:

HAB-350

This is the Balloon that was used by the team at MIT who started the High Altitude Photography craze! With a payload of 1-2 lbs, the user should expect and altitude approaching 60,000 to 70,000 feet.

HAB-600

These balloons are recommended for individuals or groups who are launching a photographic payload for the first time. Package payload should be 1-2 lbs (500 to 1000 grams). The balloon size will provide effective training in how to prepare a package for launch, fill a balloon, and tie the neck properly, while learning connection lengths between balloon and parachute and between parachute and payload. Although the size is ideal for training purposes, if successful the package should reach a burst altitude of 75,000 to 90,000 feet.

HAB-800

These balloons are recommended for individuals or groups who have had experience in HAB launches and are primarily using payloads of 2 to 4 lbs (1000 to 2000 grams). Balloons are normally inflated so that there is an ascent rate of approximately 270-300 meters/min (890 to 1000 feet/min), which results in typical bursting altitudes of 90,000 to 100,000 feet.

HAB-1000

These balloons are recommended for individuals or groups who have had experience in HAB launches and are trying to progressively attain higher altitudes after each launch. Best performance is achieved when balloons are used with payloads of 2 to 4 lbs (900 to 1800 grams) and inflated to achieve an ascent rate of 270 to 300 meters/min (890 to 1000 feet/min). Typical burst altitudes of these balloons with the stated payload and ascent rate is 100,000 to 110,000 feet.

HAB-1200

These balloons are recommended for individuals or groups who have had experience in HAB launches and are trying to progressively attain higher altitudes after each launch. Best performance is achieved when balloons are used with payloads of 2 to 4 lbs (900 to 1800 grams) and inflated to achieve an ascent rate of 270 to 300 meters/min (890 to 1000 feet/min). Typical burst altitudes of these balloons with the stated payload and ascent rate is 100,000 to 110,000 feet.

HAB-1500

These balloons are recommended when using payloads of 4 to 6 lbs (1800 to 2700 grams). When launching this type balloon, and payloads of this weight, it is assumed that the operators have had experience and are familiar with launch procedures and FAA requirements. Inflating the balloons to achieve an ascent rate of 270 to 300 meters/min (890 to 1000 feet.min) will result in typical burst altitudes of 105,000 to 115,000 feet.

HAB-1600

These balloons are recommended when using payloads of 4 to 6 lbs (1800 to 2700 grams). When launching this type balloon, and payloads of this weight, it is assumed that the operators have had experience and are familiar with launch procedures and FAA requirements. This balloon is a Kaymont Worldwide Exclusive, only available here.

HAB-1800

These balloons are recommended when using payloads of up to 6 lbs . When launching this type balloon, and payloads of this weight, it is assumed that the operators have had experience and are familiar with launch procedures and FAA requirements. This balloon is a Kaymont Worldwide Exclusive, only available here.

HAB-2000

These balloons are made to lift larger (7-9 pounds) payloads to altitudes reaching 110,000 feet. With lighter payloads, expect altitudes approaching 115,000 feet under optimal conditions.

HAB-3000

These balloons provide the highest level of achievement for high altitude balloonists, carrying maximum payloads of up to 12 lbs  and reaching burst altitudes of more than 115,000 feet, depending on weight of payload.

TX SERIES BALLOONS

COLD WEATHER COMPOUND HIGH PERFORMANCE BALLOONS

HAB-TX-800

These balloons are recommended for individuals or groups who have had experience in HAB launches and are primarily using payloads of 2 to 4 lbs (1000 to 2000 grams). Balloons are normally inflated so that there is an ascent rate of approximately 270-300 meters/min (890 to 1000 feet/min), which results in typical bursting altitudes of 90,000 to 100,000 feet.

HAB-TX-1000

These balloons are recommended for individuals or groups who have had experience in HAB launches and are trying to progressively attain higher altitudes after each launch. Best performance is achieved when balloons are used with payloads of 2 to 4 lbs (900 to 1800 grams) and inflated to achieve an ascent rate of 270 to 300 meters/min (890 to 1000 feet/min). Typical burst altitudes of these balloons with the stated payload and ascent rate is 100,000 to 110,000 feet.

HAB-TX-1200

These balloons are recommended for individuals or groups who have had experience in HAB launches and are trying to progressively attain higher altitudes after each launch. Best performance is achieved when balloons are used with payloads of 2 to 4 lbs (900 to 1800 grams) and inflated to achieve an ascent rate of 270 to 300 meters/min (890 to 1000 feet/min). Typical burst altitudes of these balloons with the stated payload and ascent rate is 100,000 to 110,000 feet.

HAB-TX-1500

Our ultra-high performance balloon, the HAB-TX-1500 is designed to resist cold-weather moisture effects and achieve the maximum burst altitude of a 1500g balloon. Inflating the balloons to achieve an ascent rate of 270 to 300 meters/min (890 to 1000 feet/min) will result in typical burst altitudes of 115,000 to 125,000 feet.

HAB-TX-1600

Our ultra-high performance balloon, the HAB-TX-1600 is designed to resist cold-weather moisture effects and achieve the maximum burst altitude of a 1600g balloon. Inflating the balloons to achieve an ascent rate of 270 to 300 meters/min (890 to 1000 feet/min) will result in typical burst altitudes above 115,000ft. This balloon is a Kaymont Worldwide Exlcusive.

HAB-TX-2000

These balloons are made to lift larger (7-9 pounds) payloads to altitudes reaching 110,000 feet. With lighter payloads, expect altitudes approaching 115,000 feet under optimal conditions.

HAB-TX-3000

These balloons provide the highest level of achievement for high altitude balloonists, carrying maximum payloads of up to 12 lbs  and reaching burst altitudes of more than 115,000 feet, depending on weight of payload.
