Hi all,

This is just to announce that, as part of the GNU Radio organization, I
have been accepted as a mentor in the ESA Summer of Code in Space
(http://socis.esa.int/) program, with the project:

34. gr-satellites, a SDR amateur satellite receiver framework: expanding
the CCSDS stack support

The ESA Summer of Code in Space program is an ESA program where students
can work in an open-source project during the 3 summer months. There is
a funding of 4000€ from ESA for each student accepted in the program.
Students should apply to one of the accepted projects between April 11
and May 4.

The description of the project is as follows:

  gr-satellites is a GNU Radio out of tree module encompassing a
  collection of telemetry decoders that supports more than 60 different
  Amateur satellites. It suports most popular protocols, such as AX.25,
  the GOMspace NanoCom U482C and AX100 modems, an important part of the
  CCSDS stack, the AO-40 protocol used in the FUNcube satellites, and
  several ad-hoc protocols used in other satellites.

  So far, only parts of the CCSDS stack that were critical for decoding
  the Amateur satellites are implemented. Often, these Amateur
  satellites implement only a small part of CCSDS, using ad-hoc
  protocols in combination with the standard. Additionally, there is no
  complete implementation of the CCSDS stack for GNU Radio.

  The goal of this project is to expand the support of the CCSDS stack
  in gr-satellites, providing a complete implementation of some of the
  standard blue books. Time allowing, the following will be implemented:
  TM Synchronization and Channel Coding, TC Synchronization and Channel
  Coding, TM Space Data Link Protocol, TC Space Data Link Protocol,
  Space Packet Protocol.

If you are interested in participating in this project and have any
questions, please don't hesitate to contact me at address@hidden
Also, please relay this information to anyone that could be interested.

Best regards,

Daniel Estévez
