- Oct 22, 2013View SourceI've been getting these for months. I'm just not sure what is going on. I was even invited to speak at the event.I have not sent them anything, mine, yours, or even the ARHAB logos. I figure if they want them, they are available on the interent.Sent from my iPad, one finger at a time.

Just got this email from Antariksha Labs in Bangalore. The link
to the .pdf goes thru Google Doc, but I did visit the web site,
and it appears to be a legitimate operation. They even plan on
using ham radio for APRS. It seems that all they are asking
for, at the git go anyway, is permission to use your balloon group
I did send my personal regrets, but maybe others out there in the
ARHAB world may wish to respond otherwise.

From: Antariksha Labs <info@...>
We are proud to offer a wonderful opportunity for you to
be our event partner for the 1st Annual BalloonSat Competition 2013-14
to be held in Bangalore, India.
This event was supported and modified by the Executive
Director of American Astronautical Society, Mr. James Kirkpatrick who
was asked to organize a Cansat event in India but due to certain norms
of rocket procedures in India, we modified it to a balloon launch. Other
procedures like mentoring, preliminary design review,critical design
review, post flight review will be carried as planned and each team will
be guided by experienced candidates like from your lab and other
organizations. We have already seen heavy response from the students
from entire country and we are willing forward to carry out this
competition with your help.
We are hosting this event to stimulate students'
interest in space science and technology, and provide them with an
opportunity to participate in a conceptual satellite mission. The event
concentrates on a student payload design with their own experiment taken
up to near space altitude to test on their work and retrieve the data
back for observation. The event grabs the knowledge of each and every
stream of science/engineering which encourages every one. We're sure
this event will call in a lot of audience around. We have been working
in for Space Research for the development of cubesats for quite a while,
and believe that triggering this event would boost in all the students
to take in interest into the multi-disciplinary work.
Now we would want you to be as one of our event
partners. The token from a company like yours will give us and the
students enough exposure and confidence to participate in the event. We
hope that you accept our offer and join us for the event.
On your approval, we would like to add your company logo
on our website and event advertisements. We have attached the event
advertisement for you to have a glimpse of what the event is about and
we would be glad to put in your name onto it. Feel free to ask in for
further details or any clarification.
Expecting a positive response from your side.
