Abstract [en]

The small satellite Odin is a three-axis stabilised, high pointing accuracy, sub-millimetre, space observatory. One mean to attain as high efficiency as possible, which the Odin operations depend on, is the ability to quickly react to new input from the science users as well as platform and payload behaviour. Both the teams involved in the satellite operations are equipped with an easily accessible and modifiable set of software tools for monitoring telemetry and command generation. The software package is to a large extent based on scripts that have the advantage of being legible to the user and not only to the developer. Matlab scripts are used in most steps in the operations cycle, save the actual execution of commands onboard the spacecraft. Small and efficient teams of s/c operators and mission controllers together with easily accessible software, based on COTS components, facilitate in rapidly meeting new demands on spacecraft performance from the users.
