Balloon Strain Relief System

A balloon strain relief system for use during pre-launch activities was developed and its effect on balloon tensile strength was examined. Various clamp materials and balloons and tensile test specimens from the balloons were laboratory tested. This restraint system was deemed feasible if a limited localized loss in film tensile strength could be tolerated.
