Re: AO-40 attitude determination



Dave,

YACE is a part of the IHU-2 system, the IHU-2 system is currently powered
off, ... and hasn't been tested since control was re-established, ... to my
knowledge and reading of telem.

The 2 or 3 JPEG pictures that YACE produces even with high compression take
at least 60 D Blocks to download, ... we are currently only getting between
60 and 120 A blocks per orbit, ... if they turned on IHU-2 and YACE we would
only get a hand full of A blocks, ... and given that we miss whole MAs of
telem, we might not even get a whole picture, .... so the answer is no, ...
YACE can't help here, though I look forward to decoding the pictures again
once we get a better orientation for downlink.

BTW IHU-2 is almost next door to S2 MB TX, so the chances are its OK!

Cheers
Paul, VP9MU
