ABSTRACT PES Institute of Technology along with five other institutions is developing a nano-satellite for capturing images of the earth. The project is intended for students to understand and work with advanced space technologies. The satellite is built around subsystems such as Attitude Control System Electrical Power System and Mechanical Systems. The data distribution is handled by an On Board Computer OBC system which is interfaced to all the subsystems. On Board Computer is a microprocessor board where satellite software is executed. The OBC after internal processing of satellite telemetry parameters sends the telemetry information using S-band transponder to the ground station. The telemetry information is received by a computer system through the ground station setup for receiving the satellite data. This paper discusses the development of software which is used in the satellite control centre for carrying out TTC operations of satellite. The data is presented to the spacecraft operational personnel using graphics tools for further analysis of the spacecraft health. The design of ground station software is presented in this paper. We use the approach of component-based software methodology.
