The Standard Module (SM) is a common platform shared by all the STRAW-b specialized modules. The components of the SM provide power supply, data logging, and communication within specialized modules (eg. spectrometer, muon chamber, LiDAR). The independent SMs in their own glass spheres that are not hosting specialized modules are used for testing the reliability of common components and recording environmental data and system health information.
