                         thermal control is based on heaters regulated by software via 
                         thermistors. The passive thermal control consists of multi-layer 
                         insulation blankets and radiators, paints, surface finishes to 
                         maintain temperature level of the overall carrier components 
                         within an acceptable value. The thermal control design is 
                         supported by thermal analysis using thermal mathematical model.
