are normal. During the chat sessions were the following parameters on-board systems:
The voltage onboard network 13.2V-15V
Current on-board network 0.48A - 2.72A
The temperature on board the vehicle from 0 to 28 degrees Celsius
Parameters within acceptable values.
It was continued for configuring the system and stabilize the orientation of the spacecraft,
in particular algorithm is enabled to maintain solar orientation. According to information
received telemetry data confirmed that the unit is currently sorietirovan solar panels
to the sun and has a small rotation around this axis.
