The top panel shows the measured spin rate over the coverage period, which is always within  ± 0.1% of 1 rpm. The spin rate typically adopts one of three values as can be seen in the middle panel, which is a zoom into a period of several days. In the bottom panel we show the typical drift of the spin rate within a dwell, due to small residual torques applied to the satellite.
