ARCA carried out a flight test for the ExoMars program

ARCA carried out a radio equipment calibration flight for the ExoMars program. A hot air balloon, piloted by Mihai Ilie and Mugurel Ionescu, lifted a pressurised equipment capsule to a high altitude in order to test the avionics for the ExoMars program. Among the equipments was a transponder that will allow the identification of the aerial vehicle by the civilian and military air traffic controllers in the Black Sea area.
