Oneliner Study how the dynamics and processes in the troposphere can cause variability in the behavior of the upper atmosphere and ionosphere.
Results Radio instabilities prevented the satellites from contacting MXL’s FXB station, since the satellites were not transmitting over the FXB, though they were beaconing over other locations. The ability to observe the satellites using stations elsewhere on the planet directly enabled the recovery of the spacecraft by allowing the MXL team to confirm the spacecraft was alive, identify the anomaly causing the spacecraft radio software to crash, and finally to correct it.
