Re: Balloon burst detection false-positive issue due to atmospheric instability
What about using a laser rangefinder of some sorts? Stuff the device in the neck of the balloon and it can monitor for when it's pointing at open space.
If the sudden pressure drop when the balloon bursts can be measured and acted on, there's now three ways of detecting a balloon burst. How about if LOHAN has all three methods incorporated and the onboard computer hits the go button when 2/3 methods report a burst?
