A mechanism for the automatic deflation of captive balloons in the event of mooring cable breakage has reduced a hazard to air navigation. Devised at the U. S. Army Electronic Proving Ground (USAEPG) at Fort Huachuca, Arizona, this mechanism has also effected savings in recovered balloons and meteorological instruments.
