TechnoSat’s 1000th orbit

Pass control of TU Berlin's mission control center while TechnoSat's 1000th orbit

On September, the 19th 2017, shortly past 11 A.M. UTC-time we contacted TechnoSat on its 1000th orbit. The nano satellite was in range of our ground station on 234 of the 1000 orbits. The TechnoSat operations team could download over 8.5 MByte of telemetry data on these passes to determine the satellite’s condition. First experiments were also conducted with the payloads. Now payload teams can begin to evaluate the data of their systems. more to: TechnoSat’s 1000th orbit

TechnoSat: Test and commissioning

Currently TechnoSat’s systems are being evaluated. To do so the subsystems are activated separately to ascertain the performance of the platform. The team is happy to find all systems in an excellent functional state. TechnoSat has passed the start and his first weeks on orbit without defects. more to: TechnoSat: Test and commissioning

Successful contact
