Unified propulsion system electronics UPS-E

The UPS-E controls and monitors the Unified Propulsion System (UPS) such as thruster valves, pressure transducers and temperature sensors. In this function the UPS-E receives commands for the thruster valves from the AOCS and feeds back telemetry data to the AOCS. The UPS-E realizes the interface between AOCS and UPS.
