PLUME- cubesat

In 2007 Prof George Fraser invited me to be a mentor for the up- and down-links of the Cubesat proposed to be built by Leicester University students.

This prompted me to go to my archives and select text and programmes that I had written in the last few years for decoding satellite telemetry. The Leicester cubseat wiki has gone way ahead of this now (2010) but here is a summary of that previous work.

  • The first satellite I commented on was LUSAT, the Argentinian (LU) satellite that sends out a telemetry beacon in Morse Code.
  • Attached is the text explaining it and my simulator (runs on Pentium 1 or 2, sorry-see notes).
  •  I also downloaded and analysed the housekeeping data from STARSHINE3  and QUAKESAT/
  • Here is the text explaining it; a simple program I wrote in BASIC;here is the compiled exe version (zipped); and some sample data QUAKES.txt.
  John Heath G7HIA is my fellow mentor and we are working on all aspects of the comms design.
 
Note 2010 -if you go to the wiki site now you'll see some considerable progress!! But I have left these pages here as they may be of some interest to similar projects.
