Payload Support Unit (PLSU)

Overview

The Payload Support Unit (PLSU) by Berlin Space Technologies is a sophisticated electronic device that is designed to operate a payload, receive, store, process and compress payload data. It further includes an encryption and CCSD engine. Additional functions are to monitor and compensate the temperature of a payload and operate a focus mechanism.
