We took a big step towards that goal this month by sending one of our autolaunchers, Chicken Little, on a working vacation to sunny Puerto Rico. After initial construction and testing in Wisconsin USA, Chicken Little was packed up and shipped to a new location over 3500 km away, where it was reassembled and used to successfully autolaunch a handful of test balloons.
Chicken Little is one of a number of custom-built, 55ft tall autolaunch cranes, designed to fill, lift and launch our tennis-court sized balloons in under 30 minutes. Portable autolaunchers allow us to move our whole operation to places that give us access to favourable wind patterns that can help us provide Internet connectivity around the world.
It looks like Chicken Little and the Loon operations team are having a great time down in Puerto Rico, and making some new friends along the way - check out a selection of their vacation postcards…
