About Us

We are a small business focused on bringing innovation to the amateur and scientific ballooning communities.

I know my website address is different from the logo on my site. Here’s why: when I was developing my business, I wanted to create a memorable URL. My idea was to expand on “balloon” and “altitude” and “technology” – hence loonatec. And it wasn’t lost on me that folks who love ballooning could be a bit of a lunatic, especially at the mercy of the Wind Gods. But when I created my website, well, Balloon Ascent Technologies seemed to better describe my products and my ballooning experience. And besides, its acronym – BAT – also fits with the lunacy of this industry.
