Abstract: At the end of 1997, JPL initiated the Mars Balloon Validation Program (MABVAP) to develop and validate the technology needed for a Mars balloon mission. The main focus of MABVAP was to develop and to test a viable concept for the Martian balloon that could be implemented on the small-scale dedicated or piggy-back mission.
