OSSI-1Open Source Satellite Initiative
Artist and radio amateur Hojun Song DS1SBO has spent 7 years developing his Open Source Satellite Initiative satellite OSSI-1. He has designed and developed it from scratch using readily available components rather than expensive space qualified hardware. It has a beacon in the 145 MHz band, a data communications transceiver in the 435 MHz band and carries a 44 watt LED optical beacon to flash Morse Code messages to observers on Earth. OSSI-1 was launchend aboard a Soyuz-2.1a with BION-M1 (main payload) and BeeSat-2/-3, SOMP and DOVE-2 from Baikonur at 10:00 UTC on the April 19, 2013.

XY = byte formated in hex numbers.
OS0 Packet: Hello Data
Fixed Data. If the system suffers from the failure, this is the only message you' going to hear. ANYOUNG means hello in Korean.

OS1 Packet: Status Data
This packet tells us the basic status information of the OSSI-1 Satellite:
OS1: Packet Header
Space: There is a space between the header and the data Operation Mode: satellite operation mode Module On Status: which modules are on now EPS Status: Status of the EPS module Error Status: Last Error Occured OBC Tick Count 3: 32 bit Tick Counter of the OBC since it's working divided into 4 bytes - MSB OBC Tick Count 2: 32 bit Tick Counter of the OBC since it's working divided into 4 bytes OBC Tick Count 1: 32 bit Tick Counter of the OBC since it's working divided into 4 bytes OBC Tick Count 0: 32 bit Tick Counter of the OBC since it's working divided into 4 bytes - LSB
BOOT_MODE = 0 DEPLOY_MODE = 1 NORMAL_MODE = 2 LED_MODE = 3 SAFE_MODE = 4 RECOVERY_MODE= 5 TEST_MODE = 6
Module On Status
The data will be OR-ed from the below to show the status at the same time
COMMS_ON = 0x01 BEACON_ON = 0x02 LED_ON = 0x04 EPS Status
The data will be OR-ed from the below to show the status at the same time. Tricky to decode as the below using upper and lower 4 bits to show the status
BATTERY_MODE = 0x01 SUPERCAP_EN = 0x02 SUPERCAP_PATH_ON = 0x04 BATTERY_CHARGED = 0x08 BATTERY_FAULT = 0x10 SUPERCAP_CHARGER_EN = 0x20 SUPERCAP_CHARGED = 0x40
Last saved error OBC Tick Count
The OBC saves the tick count in second unit. It uses 32 bit variable, so to send the count in morse code, it got divided into 4 bytes and then again into hex format. Tick Count 3 is the MSB
OS2 Packet: VI Data
Voltages and currents of the OSSI-1 Satellite:
OS2: Packet Header
Space: There is a space between the header and the data Solar Voltage: Voltage of solar panels befor going into EPS module Battery Voltage: Voltage of the Lithium-Ion Battery Bus Voltage: Voltage of the system after the EPS module (unregulated) Supercap Voltage: Voltage of the supercapacitor on board -X Solar Panel Current: Current of the -X Solar Panel -Z Solar Panel Current: Current of the -Z Solar Panel +Z Solar Panel Current: Current of the +Z Solar Panel -Y Solar Panel Current: Current of the -Y Solar Panel +Y Solar Panel Current: Current of the +Y Solar Panel
