Commissioning successfully completed


The commissioning of the UWE-3 satellite’s systems has successfully been completed last week. All redundant systems have been activated and their correct functioning was verified. This includes the redundant OBDH micro-controller, the second radio transceiver and the antenna deployment of the secondary radio. Furthermore, different operation modes have been tested. Since December 3rd the ADCS has been switched on as the primary technical payload. The satellite remains in a very good health state with batteries charged above 80% throughout the orbit.
