The EUSO-Balloon instrument is a prototype for the JEM-EUSO telescope, intended to observe for the first time from space the extensive air showers (EAS) induced by the ultra-high energy cosmic rays. The detection technique relies on the measurement of the photons produced by the fluorescence of the Earth's atmosphere when EAS develop. EUSO-Balloon, a UV telescope payload of a stratospheric balloon, has the objective to prove the relevance of the concepts developed for the JEM-EUSO project. An important part of this thesis is devoted to the assembly, the integration and the test of the EUSO-Balloon's photo-detection module. It is an array of 36 multi-anodes photo-multiplier tubes, for a total of 2,304 pixels, and of a readout electronics able to image the development at the speed of the light of the EAS. It has a framing time of 2.5 microseconds with a single photo-electron sensitivity. It has been proved that the photo-detection efficiency of this camera can be measured with an accuracy better than 5% for the proper polarization voltage. The first flight of EUSO-Balloon happened in August 2014 and proved, with the use of laser induced events, that air showers can be imaged for the near space. Data acquired during this flight allow to study the UV background originating from the Earth's atmosphere. The assembly, integration and test work provided during this project leads the development of future missions
