By Jens Eickhoff

This booklet represents the Flight Operations guide for a reusable microsatellite platform – the “Future reasonably cheap Platform” (FLP), constructed on the college of Stuttgart, Germany. It offers a uncomplicated perception at the onboard software program features, the center information dealing with procedure and at the energy, communications, perspective keep an eye on and thermal subsystem of the platform. Onboard failure detection, isolation and restoration features are taken care of intimately. The platform is suited to satellites within the 50-150 kg type and is baseline of the microsatellite “Flying machine” from the University.

The publication covers the fundamental details for flooring operators to controls an FLP-based satellite tv for pc using foreign command and keep an eye on criteria (CCSDS and ECSS PUS).

Furthermore it presents an summary at the Flight keep watch over middle in Stuttgart and at the hyperlink to the German area supplier DLR flooring Station that is used for early challenge stages. Flight strategy and project making plans chapters supplement the booklet.
