Earth observations satellites are out of ground stations' antenna reach most of the time. The data payload they quickly accumulate has to be retrieved in short intervals when communication is possible. Therefore, communication has to be fast, robust and any potential problems should be detected as early as possible.
The EOTVS is a system designed to test those kinds of data transfers. It is capable of configuring ground station equipment to acquire data, analyze it and write detailed reports about the process.
The system can accept data on one or two channels (up to 1.3Gbit/s), work independently as long as sufficient disk space is available, retrieve and analyze CCSDS telemetry data - CADU, VCDU and ISP content, handle scrambled content and correct errors. It also provides tools for later analysis of the captured content, such as a frame and packet-level data explorer, a binary comparison tool and detailed information in the database and XML reports for ad hoc custom analysis.
The system provides a graphical user interface which is remotely accessible and includes M&C features like alarm management, system state overview, management and data acquisition preparation and progress overview components, among others.

This year's WebCamp arrived at the same format as before, but with a twist – the opening day was set on Friday, a workday, so you needed to put some extra effort in attending it, which actually resulted in a crowd! The organisers have really made an effort so everything was top-notch, up to widely offered mandarins next to cornucopia of coffee and other beverages. However, there was some weird pervasive feeling of lazy Sunday during the next day (Saturday, yes!), most probably due to lower attendance and sunny October skies. That, of course, did not stop any talks from being held so those were two quite interesting days, with quite a spectrum of topics discussed. I’ve decided to reflect on some of the quality talks; there were many of them, but there’s only so much that can be covered.
This is the tutorial for all of you, who at some point in your life had an idea about making your own electronic device, but didn’t know where to start and how. Fear no more, because I’m about to show you how to make your Printed Circuit Board (PCB) from scratch, using Autodesk’s CAD tool EAGLE.
