With a volume of 3.3 litres, the very lightweight polystyrene probe offers enough space for several cameras, GPS trackers and data loggers. With a wall thickness of approx. 3 cm, the probe is easy to work with and optimally protects the installed technology against the extreme temperatures of up to -65 °C. The polystyrene probe is also very robust when landing and reliably protects the technology inside. The laterally attached “wings” minimise the rotation for even more stable recordings from the stratosphere.
With the help of the optionally available STRATOlab Experiment mount, experiments can be attached outside the polystyrene probe in a few simple steps, enabling research at extreme temperatures and minimal air pressure.
