Taking thermal images from an altitude that exceeds the usual flight altitude of airplanes? This is a mission for Stratoflights. For the manufacturer Nitehog, we conducted a research flight into the stratosphere. On board the stratosphere probe: a new development IR camera. Our mission was to send the IR camera to an altitude of at least 30,000 meters. No problem at all for our helium-filled weather balloons. With the help of this research flight, the infrared camera was tested for its functionality under the most extreme conditions. As this is a new development and the laboratory tests had been completed, tests were now carried out under real conditions and it was tested whether the IR camera could withstand temperatures as low as -60°C. Nitehog has produced a short film of our research flight. We are proud to have been a part of the research project.
