🧑‍🚀Orion Power & Data Unit STE Architect


Eight power and data units (PDU) connect the flight computers and the software to the rest of Orion. These PDUs control the power to every component on the vehicle and they control effectors such as valves, thrusters, and heaters. All sensor data such as temperature and pressure are routed through the PDUs as well. The PDUs also play a critical role in communicating with the rocket that launches Orion and puts it on its trajectory to the Moon.
