HABEXpico is a lightweight high altitude balloon payload designed for long duration flights. Using superpressure balloons, HABEXpico can fly to specific altitudes and maintain a stable float. The payload is equipped with a GPS, microcontroller, and radio module for transmitting location and power status. To maximize energy efficiency, an on-board power management circuit charges the payload batteries using solar panels, while the microcontroller balances the use of payload subsystems.
