These are most of the boards that will be aboard the Telis balloon. From left to right:

The power supplies on the backgrond are set to about 6 volts and are connected to the backplane at the far left (hard to see). This backplane provides besides power also communications.

The whole package, including batteries (see image below), will be enclosed in a casing, which will be put aboard the gondola.

The boards need to be powered on the balloon and this is why a battery pack will be connected to the backplane in the space in the middle (see first picture). SRON built a custom charger for the also custom made battery pack.
