BeppoSAX Attitude

In order to continuously and promptly update the info about the BeppoSAX attitude, the SOC team regularly send the coordinates of the pointing directions of two BeppoSAX axes, namely Y-axis (co-aligned with GRBM3 and WFC2) and Z-axis (co-aligned with the NFIs), together with the start and end times of the observation, according to a fixed format, to an automatic machine, processing and storing the attitude information.
