Martin Falang
OBC Team Lead

OBC

OBC is short for On-Board Computer. The OBC team is responsible for programming our satellite’s main computer and giving assistance in programming to the ADCS team. The main computer handles commands from the ground, monitor the system and change its operating modes. It is the satellites functional center and a key part to make the satellite operational.

ADCS

The Attitude determination and control system (ADCS) is responsible for developing a system that can control the attitude of the satellite. The attitude needs to be controlled so the Earth is in the background for the selfies, so the antennas point to Earth for radio transmission and so that the solar cells are pointing towards the Sun for charging.

Electronics

The electronics team (ES – Electronic systems) are responsible for the development and production of the electrical systems on the satellite. Other teams are responsible for their systems, but can hire the electronics team for development of hardware. The team makes sure that all the systems of the satellite interfaces correctly according to the EICD (Electrical Interface Control Document). The EPS (Electronic Power System) is currently ES responsibility.

Satellite Communications

The Satellite Radio team is responsible for implementing the space segment of the communication system. The team works closely with the Ground Station team and the OBC team to implement routing of commands from the ground station to the satellite, and telemetry and data from the satellite to the ground station. The satellite radios are essential to ensure mission success, and a lot of effort is being put into making sure we have a reliable communication link with high bandwidth.

Sub-Orbital

Sub-Orbital is responsible for the planning and execution of a balloon mission – during which the other teams get a chance to test their systems and the overall integration between them – in addition to carrying out several of our own objectives. This provides valuable insight to the teams for when the time comes to launch Orbit’s satellite.
