Abstract : The program was funded to conduct balloon field operations from Fort Churchill, Manitoba and at other sites as designated. A field crew, suspension and rigging hardware, aircraft and helicopter tracking, parachutes, balloon telemetry and control instrumentation, electronic tracking, and reports and documentation were provided as necessary. Thirteen launches were performed at Fort Churchill, one at Dauphin, Manitoba, and one at Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Of these fifteen flights, two were aborted on the ground and one failed during ascent. This report describes individual flights, equipment used, flight data, and various program information.
