Telemetry Tracking and Communication (TT&C) System
The TTC subsytem comprises of:
The primary function of the TTC subsystem is to provide the communication link to the ground station under all mission phases.
High Dynamics Receiver Electronics
The TTC RX comprise of 4 modules:
The function of the Receiver module is to acquire the residual carrier from the ground station and extract the 16 kHz sub-carrier for the tele-command demodulator inside the CCSDS Processor.
TTC Transmitter Electronics
The TTC S-band transmitter comprise of 5 sub-modules:
The function of the TTC Transmitter is to receive the Root Raised Cosine telemetry baseband modulation from the CCSDS processor, direct up convert and amplify the output to over 2W for transmission to the ground station.
The TTC S-band Antenna module comprises of the following sub-modules:
The function of the antenna module is to provide the omni directional antenna coverage with a minimum gain of -10 dBi to support communication with the satellite under all operating modes.
The CCSDS Processor module comprise of:
