To develop the circuit board represented to the Communication subsystem in the cube satellite

scope of view


The communication subsystem of Satellites has to send various information and data down to the ground station and receive commands from the Ground Station(GS). CS is responsible for frequency down-conversion and demodulation of received uplink signal from ground control station and modulation & frequency up-conversion of downlink transmitted signal to GCS. The interface between the communication subsystem and the other subsystem is through the On-Board Computer as shown in Figure 1.

Figure 1.

The purpose of this project is to design and develop CS by Egyptian students. This achieved by giving them the full opportunity to be engaged in the life cycle of design and development of the 1st Egyptian universities satellite, This HW product will allow students to demonstrate their ability to apply the knowledge and skills they have gained throughout their years in the educational system.

The Communication subsystem for EUS (Educational Satellite) project is used to receive and send data from whole satellite subsystems to and from Antenna and it mainly interfaced with the On-Board Computer (OBC) Subsystem for data processing and EPS (Power board subsystem) to provide required power for receiving and transmitting for the Communication subsystem board, The purpose is to design board to achieve the required objectives.
