At Europeans 2021, scorers asked for some 360-degree cameras at the targets.There will already be some such cameras in the next Events hardware package. The recordings from the cameras will help the scorers and the jury. 360-degree videos give a new experience to the public, further increasing the popularity of balloon sports!
Make an astonishing video of a competitors flight with the new 360 degree camera, and make it available to view on your Event Ballon-tracking website easily.

We are pleased to present the Balloon-Tracking System at the FAI 2021 BALLOON COMMISIONN ePLENARY as a presenter of the New Technologies Subcomitee.
The Balloon-tracking System is more than a logger, it is a complex Competition Management System.
We could talk about the fact that the Speed Limit Warning feature of the Balloon-tracking System is unique in the world today. The Balloon-tracking System with this radio communication feature gives balloon pilots as much safety as FLARM gliders or TCAS commercial pilots!

Competitors at CECUP 2020 also used the Balloon-tracking System. Not only was the flight of balloons visible in the sky in this competition.
The track appeared on the public map of the Balloon-tracking website with a 15-minute delay. With this solution, tracking the flights did not interfere with the competition, Officials saw the movement of the balloons in real time.
We were a participant of the XXI FAI EUROPEAN HOT AIR BALLOON CHAMPIONSHIP in Mallorca. We carried 100 Tube devices for the 100 competitor.
The system tracked the flight of all balloons with the help of the 3 mobile radio receivers on ground. The Organizers saw the flights in real time, the balloons moving on the public pages with a 15-minute delay.
