HABEES (High Altitude Balloon Electrical Engineering Systems) is the primary sub-team in the Balloons Team responsible for the development of electronics and software for HAB applications. It was originally called HABADD (High Altitude Balloon Avionics Development Division) and was later renamed to include all Electronics & Flight Software development in the balloons team outside of ValBal. It was started by Kirill Safin in Spring of 2016.

HABEES has since developed two HAB electronics architectures, four avionics systems, two battery management systems, and a variety of breakout & expansion platforms, as well as test systems and flight software. It is also responsible for balloons general-oriented radio technology development, developing systems such as APRS, SSTV, and ATV.
