Command and Data Handling

The computing system on board WatSat is responsible for collecting and transmitting telemetry data from the spacecraft to our ground station while also connecting all of the various subsystems together.


  • Design a connection scheme for many peripherals such as ADCS and transceivers
  • Design a custom printed circuit board to interface with the motherboard
  • Handle gathering and storage of large volumes of telemetry and science data
  • Develop the software for WatSat, from low level driver work, to high level processes
