According to Anthony AA2TX's presentation/research ...

-The battery must be initially charged to power up ARISSat-1
-The battery must have a charge for the initial 15 minutes of activation
-ARISSat-1 will power down during eclipse if battery fails
-ARISSat-1 can operate without battery in sunlight

>> ... can it default to solar cells? aka AO-7

Don't know if my answer is on target, Bob. But that's all I have at my fingertips ...
