    The SkySat system is carried on a 10- to 12-foot latex balloon filled with hydrogen to lift the 12-pound payload of the actual system. Soldiers and civilian leaders observed and took part in a hands-on demonstration of the system, which can be launched from virtually anywhere using the portable launch bag, even in winds as high as 40 knots.
