A week had passed since the separation satellite “Chibis-M” of the cargo vehicle “Progress M-13M” and began its independent flight. During this time a large amount of work on testing and configuring systems on board. During this time, control unit and made two points – the ground control in Kaluga and Kaluga remotely controlled from the ground complex in Krasnoyarsk.
Using these two systems control the spacecraft separated by a distance of 4,000 kilometers, can carry an average of 8 sessions per day with microsatellite and radio-visibility conditions cover almost the whole territory of Russia.
In today’s sessions were carried out work on the system management orientation and stabilization system, as well as tests of radio-speed transmission of scientific data.
According to the results of processing the received telemetry data service temperature and voltage onboard network are within acceptable values (voltage onboard network of about 14 volts, temperature from 0 to 23 degrees).
Morse beacon at a frequency of 435.215 kHz in the morning session off and will be active again on 16:30 UTC.
