I am not sure if this can be called as a Launch but regardless here is our story.
This was the first time we had attempted a launch and maybe took bureaucracy a bit too lightly.
We had planned for a launch on the 20th of May and had gotten the approval from the DGCA for the same though we were quite confident that we would get the approval from the AAI also , the Airport Authority of India found very difficult to manage or allot us an Airspace citing uncertainty over the predicted Balloon trajectory and they had us waiting for the approval till the 19th and then cancelled it. It was really sad not being able to fly after all the hard work.
But we did do a Test launch or a test run of all the Launch activities , i.e tethered the complete payload line , Balloon to ground using an additional rope , the weight of the rope eventually halted the Balloon rise we hit a max altitude of just 200 mts . We were also publishing the data live on the website and also displaying it on our Software.
I am attaching a few pictures of the test launch, please visit the website to view the data http://technotronics.org.in/ .

We are planning a launch , an actual launch at the end of August with along with all the permissions .
