Raven Aerostar Receives NASA Award
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

A South Dakota-based company is celebrating one of NASA's most prestigious awards.

Raven Aerostar received the NASA Group Achievement Award for its role in the highly-sucessful Antarctic Long Duration Balloon Campaign. Raven Aerostar produced the Long Duration/Super Pressure ballons that were used in the project.

According to Nasa's Chief of the NASA Balloon Program, Debora A. Fairbrother, "Long Duration Balloon flights from Antarctica have been called the 'crown jewel' of the NASA Balloon Programs flights."

The Antarctic Long Duration Balloon campaign began in the early 1990s. Raven Aerostar had been providing balloons for the program for nearly 20 years.
