The Columbia Scientific Balloon Facility (CSBF), located in Palestine, Texas, is a NASA facility managed by Peraton. The contract to manage the facility is administered by the Balloon Program Office at Wallops Flight Facility of Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC).

We provide the services of launching large (400 ft. dia), unmanned, high altitude (120,000 ft.), research balloons; tracking, and recovering the scientific experiments suspended beneath them, for NASA centers and Universities from all over the world.
