Abstract [en]

The autonomous control system of PoGOLite is presented. PoGOLite is a balloon borne X-ray polarimeter designed to observe point sources. To obtain scientific data with optimal efficiency, independent of the ground connection, the payload control system has been made autonomous in most functions. The overall system architecture and the interconnections between components, as well as the automation philosophy and software, are described. Results of performance tests are given.
