Abstract : Meteorological balloon ML-635()/UM is a low-altitude, fast-rising balloon which has been developed to meet the need of U. S. Artillery Meteorological Sections. It is an inexpensive, spherical neoprene balloon with a nominal weight of 150 grams, capable of attaining a minimum altitude of 11 kilometers at a minimum ascent rate of 400 meters per minute. Two hundred of these balloons were flight-tested in an intensive program to determine military potential and suitability of the ML-635. (Author)
