A remote console system is developed to improve remote control over experimental apparatus borne on the balloon. The remote console system, residing at a ground station for balloon borne experiments, sends commands to the apparatus and receives transmissions from it. The system communicates by radio with microcomputers incorporated in the experimental apparatus borne on a balloon, where the microcomputers control the apparatus individually. The system includes plural personal computers and work stations which share the transmissions from the apparatus. The transmissions from the apparatus are formatted in a bit oriented protocol, which dispenses with a formatter and facilitate interface with the personal computers. The article describes the implementation of the system and the communication between the ground station and the balloon-borne apparatus.
