Abstract:

Two 2 dispensers for high altitude 85,000 ft. release of smoke puffs were designed, developed and flight tested in support of Air Force Geophysics Lab stratospheric turbulence studies. Each self-contained dispenser provided environmental protection and sequentially ejected six 6 smoke puff canisters containing equal weights of TiCl4 and a 5050 Water-Methanol mixture. Canisters were functioned 100 feet below the balloon platform via a tethered lanyard. Author
