Case Study: Ground Stations


Phixos was requested to build a S/W team to work within an Agile framework, providing full lifecycle development and verification, to provide ground station functionality on a Linux Platform for a new military comms satellite.


Using Enterprise architect (SysML/UML), the Eclipse CDT to implement the solution in C++ while using Google Test and Robot Framework for the unit and integration testing, all supported by the Atlassian toolset (JIRA, Confluence, and BitBucket)  the project was developed to be compliant with the ECSS-E-ST-40C Space Engineering Software standard.
