Orbital Whereabout Locator (OWL)

OWL is an in-house development of C3S intended to keep track of the spacecraft with a GNSS-based tracker, monitor the key parameters of the spacecraft and download this data using an omnidirectional VHF radio transmitter. It also accommodates an IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) and a TID (Total Ionizing Dose) sensor, whose readings are part of the telemetry data transmitted. The module has an own battery making it possible to operate completely independently of the hosting spacecraft.
