Team Leader: Vivek Varadharajan (Computer Engineering)

The Data-Handling team is responsible for the management of the information that flows across the spacecraft and between the spacecraft and the ground stations.

Our objective is to define, design and implement the computer hardware and software architectures of the satellite.

Our subsystem will take care of both housekeeping and crucial mission-related tasks, that is, collection, storage, pre-processing, compression, interpretation, and control of the data coming from the other subsystems of the satellite (the two payloads, the power and telecom subsystems, etc.). All these functionalities shall be provided through a reliable and fault-tolerant design.
