My role in the BIRDS Project:
Make sure Antenna can able to successfully deployed after satellite is launched Design Dipole and Monopole Antenna and ensure it can be able to radiate VHF and UHF radio signals from satellite to ground Ensures Antenna can withstand Space Environment Ground Station (GS)
To make sure communication link between the satellite and ground is established to exchange uplink command and telemetry data
To perform link budget calculation to obtain the margin to verify the GS system receiver sensitivity can tolerate an additional attenuation between the transmitter and the receiver, and it would still just barely work.
Determination and prediction of the orbit of the satellite. Observation planning and scheduling.
Development of Ground Station software interfaces
Ground station network operations and data base management
To make sure Birds satellites acquire registered amateur frequency to operate under the IARU and ITU regulation law
Interface Control Management
To keep track and make documents on all the subsystems interface with one another and ensure is updated for troubleshooting purposes.
Fault Tree Analysis
Responsible for creating a logic diagram of the overall satellite system by mapping the relationship between faults, subsystems, and redundant safety design elements to improve reliability.
