Patric Andrè Berthelsen
OBC Team Lead
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.
Even Åge Smedshaug
ADCS Team Lead
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 Team Lead
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.
The mechanical team is responsible for creating the physical requirements of the other subsystems. Aswell we are designing and manufacturing a camera boom in house. The simulation and testing will also be planned by this team.
