The UWE-3 team have provided an update on investigations into a recent communications anomaly on the CubeSat
After the communication anomaly and the autonomous recovery of UWE-3 two weeks ago we uploaded an extended software to the OBC to analyse the event in detail. As we already have known the EPS, OBC and ADCS were not affected, so the secondary radio.
During the tests made possible by the new software we temporarily switched back to the primary radio to check its electrical characteristics and communication performance. As the values were promisingly normal we performed extensive communication tests without seeing any existing anomaly.
Therefore we will continue normal operation.
UWE-3 was launched with FUNcube-1 on November 21, 2013. Latest UWE-3 news at
