A screenshot of the Mission Control System (MCS) software used at the CHEOPS Mission Operations Centre (MOC) at Spain's National Institute for Aerospace Technology (INTA) in Torrejón. The software allows the MOC operators to monitor the spacecraft telemetry, which includes parameters for the star tracker (STR) and the magnetometer (MAG) sensors and the reaction wheel (RW) and Magentorquer (MTQ) actuators that are used by the Attitude and Orbit Control System (AOCS) to steer the spacecraft.
