Hurricane Intercept

The simulation on this page shows a blue circle for Hurricane Alberto (August 2000) and two balloon trajectories. The blue trajectory is an uncontrolled balloon. The red trajectory is a controlled trajectory with 2 m/s of trajectory control authority. The simulation shows has 1 frame every 4 hours. Real winds from UKMO are used in this simulation.

This simulation shows the potential importance of a Ballon Guidance System for monitoring hurricane activity.
