We recently reported that we'd laid our grubby mitts on a second RockBLOCK Irdidium satellite comms unit - courtesy of Rock Seven. Top and bottom views of the RockBLOCK The RockBLOCK, pictured above, can "send and receive short messages from anywhere on Earth with a view of the sky", and it's this latter capability which has …

Thats pretty awful one (and I'm sure someone will get something better) but I think LOHAN needs ALCOHOL to travel...

Re: Might require a paint job...
I've read all the other responses and I think that LOHAN finding a way out of a sticky situation by employing her LADYGARDEN is a feasible solution - even if I did say it myself :-)
Surely you mean Balloon Accident Prevention System?
Re: How about
Well that'll certainly do too.

To what does the opaque term "cut down" refer? I assume it is an emergency balloon deflation of some sort but Google is no help at all, just showing me leggy women in ragged denim shorts in response to my demands for explanation.
It cuts the payloads down from the balloon. I usually wrap the nylon cord around a resistor and heat that up with a few watts. I suspect this time though pyros will be used.
The cut is above the parachute for what I hope are obvious reasons :-)

Not going to try to compete with the suggestions, but noticed that this is now a real D.I.Y. jobbie. There's nothing like a piece of copper stripboard to reveal a dedicated home constructor.
Indeed. It was hardly worth having a custom PCB made for a one-off, and it's a lot quicker too.
How about a bit of...
