UWE-3 News: Software update of all on-board micro-controllers
beginning of February 2015 we uploaded new software images for all UWE-3
subsystems to the satellite, which comprise in total 3 images on 9
micro-controllers. This software was installed thereafter and is since then
successfully operational on UWE-3. The software update targeted major
improvements for the attitude control of the satellite, which was the focus of
tests right after the update.
The satellite now is back to a
preliminary un-operated state (switching between the on-board computers every 4
days) while we process the data and decide on future operation plans. Thanks a
lot for your great support! Especially we want to thank: CX8AF,
