BDSAT-2 update: Ongoing commissioning phase
Shortly after the successful launch, 1st signal was received, and the status of all internal subsystems was checked. The onboard experiments have been activated and over the course of the past couple of days, no anomaly was detected.
Performance is as expected and plenty of data is already being transmitted back to Earth.
