The good news on Tuesday is that we ran the FCF on the actual flight
computer, and even recorded a log file!
I finally got to sit down today and try and read the data back out and
I didn't see any packet headers (only message headers), but that's
fine, I don't know where those get
Theo and I were working on the FCF this afternoon, and I'm trying to
get up to speed fast. I'm hacking away at it like wild, but don't be
scared we can rollback my dumb code, that's what git is for. ;)
Anyway I suddenly remembered that psas has an IRC server. I set up a
Work continued today at PSU on the Flight Computer Framework (FCF).
Theo, Ian, and myself worked on it all afternoon. Ian got a lot of the
old GPS reader code ported and Theo did a large re-factoring and
constancy-ing of the names in the framework.
Theo had to run and catch a train, but I just
We ended up making the ground systems SSID the same as the
air-to-ground. This seems bad, they are two different systems.
Because the rocket is already set up and working with the trackmaster,
lets change the ground to 'psas-ground'. I think we only have to
change the wlan0 line in
I was pointed to this project the other day by Alexandru Csete, a somewhat
well known HAM radio person in Denmark.
He's been working with Copenhagen Suborbitals for a while (of course) and
he published their radio telemetry work. For once, it's an open source
I'm a week or two late, but us software types are going to start our
first top-down, full-stack review tonight. Please come if you can
make it! At the beginning will be a fair amount of diagrams and
painting with broad strokes, so it's a good way to get familiar with
the system even if
Yeah, I talked to Arfon about us a while ago. I'm surprised he

around 5:30 hammering on it.

Any luck on the driver? Can I bribe you with anything to make this happen?
I just quietly released a PSAS blog. We could add a 'GPS' category and
put minutes there. By far the most useful thing would be links to
resources looked at during the lesson. Besides that it could just be a

diagrams work. With working examples! Nice to know and relevant for

I have a list of feature requests. Mostly to take the current box and
bring it up to more 'modern' PSAS standards.
None of this is to say that the LTC that people have been working on
over the last few years is bad! In fact it worked near perfect during
the last launch. But there are always
I think nearly everyone is out of town.
We'll meet up again next week at 6:00!
Regular meeting is at 7:00 of course.

We even have a real rocket room now! We can break off and work there.
Or possibly the 84 conference room.

There's a small X200-ish ThinkPad in one of the LTC equipment bins.
Does anyone know what's on that laptop?
It just has the telemetry server on it. In fact it doesn't even have X

I think, personally, that last weeks GPS class went very well.
Instead of lecture we tried to all work on our own implementations in
a language of choice. Being able to work on it in class as opposed to
as homework made it so we could get instant feedback on burning
questions about sample-rate
Can we do a design review on Tuesday?

Hey! The v3 GPS board is done. Please pull and give me feedback as soon
as you can, I'd love to ship this out ASAP.
Speaking of Doppler shifts, back when we were doing the GPS class we
were catching satellites at 10kHz Doppler using the recorded data we
found, and that really shouldn't be possible for a receiver at rest
(relative to the Earth surface).
I never looked into it further but i am suspicious of the
Woah, that's fascinating.
We would need to get one of the other GPS boards streaming IQ data
reliably--which we really want to do anyway. It's too far of a trip to
take just for this, I think. Depends on how crazy we're feeling.
Might as well record somewhere high up in Portland (Skyline?) just
Hi GPS nerds,
I found this today via a GPS mailing list:
Apparently you can give it a trajectory as a csv file of ECEF
coordinates at 10 Hz and it will create baseband GPS simulation
through GNU Radio.
I've been looking into the partial data loss issue we experienced from
All the sensor data on the rocket are sent via UDP packets to the flight
