Operational Experiences with the Petite Amateur Navy Satellite – PANSAT
MetadataShow full item record
This paper provides an overview of PANSAT’s on-orbit performance by discussing how the integration process, design decisions, and space environment have affected mission operations. PANSAT, in its third year of operation, is providing a large quantity of telemetry, some of which has been analyzed by officer students at the Naval Postgraduate School. Battery temperatures and charge cycles, EDAC errors as well as solar panel currents, are some of the telemetry data that were analyzed to gain insight about satellite performance.
