Some background on super pressure:

Here are some key people leading the field that I’d like to connect with:

David Bowen

Richard Meadows

Potential IP / patent issues, we may need to get a license or something:

US20150266559A1 - Superpressure Balloon Envelope Cage Structure and Rigging Technique - Google Patents (super pressure balloon/envelope cage)

One of the key value propositions is being able to inexpensively return the payload for service/data recovery etc. Some links on that:

Parafoil return system

etc (nps seems to be the main place this stuff is being researched)
