Type and Description




Celestia Antwerp satellite TT&C modem (Tracking, Telemetry and Command) is today supporting a local GUI to configure, control, monitor and troubleshoot its transmit & receive chains. Remote access to this local GUI is offered by means of a desktop sharing application from a 3rd party supplier. This local GUI was initially built many years ago for equipment supporting one single TT&C chain and is inherently not easily scalable for scenarios involving several chains (e.g. satellite constellations). Moreover, it is based on TCL/TK which is today a deprecated technology and is by far outperformed by most recent frameworks offering much better user experience (UX). Hence, it is proposed to develop in scope of this internship a brand new web-GUI based on the Angular framework.


Objective and Deliverables:


The objective of this internship consists in the front-end development of the TT&C modem web-GUI. The student will work with Typescript within the Angular front-end framework. He will make sure to produce unit tested code that will be inserted within the Jenkins continuous integration framework used at Celestia Antwerp. He/She shall finish this activity with a presentation to a mixed audience of academical and industrial experts.
