Abstract

The objective of this project was to design, implement, and test a robust, digital, end-to-end data communications system that can transmit commands to and receive experiment and spacecraft status data from the PANSAT low earth orbit satellite. A link budget and other evaluations of the designed link were performed to ensure the link's viability. A prototype was designed and tested successfully. This project was part of WPI's participation in the University Nanosat-3 program sponsored by AFOSR, AIAA, and NASA GSFC.
