The Balloons Gen 1 Architecture was the first attempt within the Balloons Team at standardizing the form factor & electrical standards for standard-profile balloon avionics, power, and control systems. The architecture was introduced in Spring of 2016, and lasted until Spring of 2017, when it was replaced by HONEY, the Gen 2 Architecture.
The first-ever architecture had two primary components -- the physical form factor, as well as the electrical standards. These will both be addressed individually.
