Hi Yoann,

Selon Yoann CONGAL <address@hidden>:

 It would be very similar to the sw/ground_segment/tmtc/
agent which forwards messages from a TCP connection to the Ivy bus

 You are right.

 Any programming language for which the Ivy API is available

 Messages over the Ivy bus are just lines of ascii chars. You can look at them
(while the simulator is running for example) with the ivyprobe command:

ivyprobe '(.*)'

The description of the "messages" is in cond/messages.xml. For example, for the
ATTITUDE message:
   <message name="ATTITUDE" ID="6">
     <field name="phi" type="int16" unit="deg"></field>
     <field name="psi" type="int16" unit="deg"></field>
     <field name="theta" type="int16" unit="deg"></field>
your link agent has to send on the Ivy bus something like

42 ATTITUDE 5 0 -3

where 42 is the A/C id.
