The aerobot laboratory has 1500 square feet of floor space, a 25-ft-high bay and a 60-ft-long table for balloon and payload assembly, inspection and testing. It has assorted small machine and hand tools for construction of aerobot payloads and avionics, plus computer and video-processing equipment for flight-test data acquisition and post-flight data analysis. On one end are very large doors to enable egress of a fully inflated airship. The other end has elevated balconies from which balloon suspension and inflation may be performed. Along the sides is storage space for compressed gas. Adjacent to the lab is a large conference room for team meetings.
