Alice Springs Australia 2016

ISTAR heads to Australia in June of 2016 to launch 2 consecutive 33,000 Cu. M. balloons for INGENIUS, a start up company from Singapore. There were only 10 days in which to design and fabricate equipment to pull off the task of the two launches.  The weather window held just long enough to accomplish the launch and recovery.  The company requested us not to uncover their full identity and not expose who assisted in the launch operations. ISTAR signed an NDA with the Singaporean group which prevents us from disclosing who the client was for 3 years. The launches during this short period were test launches for a future manned launch
