Radiation Data Acquisition with Research Stratospheric Balloon Incorporating IoT Telemetry System
Jiri Skorepa, Pavel Kovar, Pavel Puricer

The paper presents a radiation data measured in the atmosphere during the flight of a stratospheric balloon. The balloon carries the third version of the gondola with custom-developed electronic device integrating GPS, IoT, data storage and gamma radiation sensors. The radiation is measured by a miniature low-power silicon detector equipped with the plastic scintillator. The gondola enables to track the balloon during the whole stratospheric flight. The IoT network simplifies reception of the telemetry data on the ground.
