Organism/ORganic Exposure to Orbital Stress
O/OREOS Satellit

The O/OREOS satellite is NASA’s first cubesat to demonstrate the capability to have two distinct, completely independent science experiments on an autonomous satellite. One experiment will test how microorganisms survive and adapt to the stresses of space; the other will monitor the stability of organic molecules in space.

The overall goal of the O/OREOS mission is to demonstrate the capability to do low-cost science experiments on autonomous nanosatellites in space in support of the Astrobiology Small Payloads program under the Planetary Science Division of the Science Mission Directorate at NASA’s Headquarters. NASA’s Ames Small Spacecraft Division manages the O/OREOS mission while all operations will be conducted by staff and students from the Robotic Systems Laboratory[1] at Santa Clara University. Scientists will apply the knowledge they gain while investigating the space environment and studying how exposure to space changes biology to help to answer Astrobiology’s fundamental questions on the origin, evolution, and distribution of life.

Launched as part of the STP-S26 mission on Nov 20th, 01:24 UTC from Kodiak, Alaska on board a Minotaur IV rocket. All satellites are placed into a 650 km altitude, 72 degree inclination circular orbit.

Battery Charge State
0 = Not full, Charging
1 = Full, Not Charging

4 = Discharging, Vbatt < 7.3V

If the battery state is full, not charging, a pin will be activated to let the payload know the battery is at full charge.

Power Management Mode
0: Disabled (uHard on 100%)

O/OREOS Telemetry Decoder

O/OREOS Telemetry Decoder

Einfaches Tool zur Dekodierung der Telemetriedaten aus einem Textfile und Anzeige der Telemetriewerte. Ausgewertet wird der String OOREOS.org, dabei ist es unabhängig, was vor dem eigentlichen UI Frame Inhalt steht. Jeder Telemetriewert kann einzeln über den gesamten Zeitraum in einem Balkendiagramm dargestellt werden. Mit der Option -Show all Values- werden alle Werte (der ältere Wert wird überschrieben) angezeigt. Zudem (optional) wird ein *.TLM File erzeugt, in dem die einzelnen konvertierten Werte im Klartext abgespeichert werden.
