Abstract [en]

PoGOLite is a balloon-borne high-energy X-ray polarimeter scheduled to be launched in the summer of 2011 from northern Sweden. The planned flight will have a circumpolar route and will last around 20 days. Because the payload will not be within the line of sight for most of the flight, satellite-based Iridium modems must be used. The low speed and reduced reliability of the connection require careful design regarding the operations and communications. The instrument has been made somewhat autonomous in function and has its own redundant storage. I describe the modes of operation, the communications, control, and thermal regulation systems, and the challenges encountered for a circumpolar flight.
