Full text not available from this repository.


BIRD, a Bi-spectral Infra-Red Detector is a micro-satellite mission for earth observation. It has been launched on Oct. 22, 2001 on a PSLV-C3 from Sriharikota, India. Nominal operations include attitude maneuvers to switch attitude from sun pointing for battery charging to target pointing for data-takes and for downlinking of high rate data. Since launch attitude determination, prediction and attitude maneuver design is performed on-ground filling in for an incomplete onboard attitude control system not yet implemented to its full extent. Between launch and Apr. 2, 2003 over 250 targets on ground have been successfully recorded.
