Zero Pressure Balloons

Combining world class quality and proven success to deliver high altitude solutions

Soaring Heights. New Horizons.

Raven Aerostar's Zero Pressure Balloons have been used as highly reliable platforms by scientific and military end-users since the late 1940’s. 

These high altitude balloons are designed to successfully carry payloads from a few pounds to over four tons to the edge of space to gather valuable information. Quickly deployable and cost-effective, these high altitude balloons are capable of short and long duration flights that serve a wide range of dynamic and critical missions.

With an impressive 10+ year record of 100% success rate for large Zero Pressure Balloons, Raven Aerostar’s flight operations systems and crews ensure payloads reach flight altitude, gather critical information, and are recovered successfully. 



Our engineering staff can trace its technical lineage all the way back to the invention of the modern stratospheric balloon."
