Title: Cubesat Telemetry Decoder Software
Author: Mahmoud, Sara Yousif Mohamed
Abstract: The CubeSat accumulates and sends its housekeeping data to ground station in encoded format, the ground station needs a system to decode and display this data for the user. This project aims to build a telemetry decoder software that decodes the data received from the CubeSat and displays it to the user in a friendly user interface program and gives the user the ability to do some process on the data. To fulfil this aim a software program is written and implemented by java programming language to built the decoder system. The system consist of four modules: data decoding, chart drawing, data display and data storage. The data decoding module gets the encoded data format and converts it to the original values that the CubeSat accumulated, some specifics algorithims are used to decode the data. The drawing chart module gives the user the ability to draw charts of some components during a specific time to note the variation of its value through that time. The data should be displayed to the user in obvious way and allows the user to monitor the status of the CubeSat by an easy interface and gives alarm for danger values. The decoded data can be stored in databases thus the user can review it later. The system was tested in the KNSAT ground station and succeed to perform its objectives.
