ESA Summer of Code in Space 2019

ESA Summer of Code in Space (SOCIS) is a program run by the European Space Agency that focuses on bringing student developers into open source software development for space applications. Students work with a mentoring organization (with potential support from ESA experts) on a 3 month programming project during their summer break.

LibreCube intends to participate in SOCIS as a mentoring organization. Listed on this page are the project ideas suggested for students to work on. The ideas are centered on the space link return path, that is, the transfer of telemetry data from reception at ground station until reception of the SLE Provider (which then routes the frames towards a mission control system eventually).

Project 1: Return TM Sync and Decoding

Brief: Define GRC flowgraphs for demodulation (BPSK, FSK, GMSK, GFSK) and decoding of a carrier channel to recover a bit stream that can be further processed downstream. Details: Mentor:

Project 2: Return Symbol Stream Reception

Project 3: Unified Space Data Link Protocol (USLP)

Project 4: Secure Space Link Protocol
