Role in BIRDS-2:
I am working on the On-Board Computer (OBC) subsystem for the BIRDS-2 CubeSats. The architecture of the OBC is inherited from the BIRDS-1 CubeSats. The primary function of the OBC is to manage operation of the CubeSats like receiving commands and executing it, initiating downlink of data or telemetry, monitoring health of the satellite, power supply control and so on.
It is a privilege to get an opportunity to be a part of such an intriguing multination project with a huge prospect of gaining hands on experience. I am very excited and looking forward to enhance my knowledge and build experience.
