Regions of parameter space for a nearly forty year old hypothesis explaining dark matter with the existence of heavy composite quark objects remain unexplored. The Antarctic Impulsive Transient Antenna (ANITA) experiment, a NASA-sponsored long duration balloon payload, is in a unique position to test this exotic dark matter candidate by exploiting the sensitivity of an on-board monitoring subsystem. We present estimates of the experimental sensitivity of ANITA to these dark matter candidates, and preliminary results for the three flights of the payload to date.
