The production work consists of PCB’s like the on-board computer, the Attitude Determination and Control System (ADCS), the DAB and several others. The final product is not just a produced PCB but also includes hardware checkout of the PCB’s to make sure that each PCB functions properly. Other parts of this assignment include writing flight software and fixing problems with electrical parts of the satellite.
