AVA is a high altitude balloon platform designed by Anthony Stirk (M0UPU).

AVA’s “flight computers” are AVR based microcontrollers using Ublox MAX6 GPS modules , software developed in Arduino environment.

I run HAB Supplies a shop for electronic components for use in HAB and other activities and when I get time I’m the Technical Director of Nevis Computers in West Yorkshire.
