Missions

The following missions will be supported by Open Mission Control and/or Pocket Mission Control. These missions are used as verification missions for the early stages of the project to ensure that the basic architecture of the software is tailored to the needs of such projects.

Initial development test missions

FUNcube-1

FUNcube is a amateur radio payload which will fly on UKube-1 and is a test of the ability of Open Mission Control to support a payload based on public published documents only:

funcube.org.uk

myPocketQub 442

The myPocketQub 442 mission is likely to be the first mission which will be controlled using Open Mission Control. Its five sub payloads impose very different requirements on mission control software, providing an ideal boundary conditions for the development of Open Mission Control.

UKube-1

UKube-1 is the UK Space Agencies 3U CubeSat spacecraft. It is expected to be able to be monitored by Open Mission Control. This provides the opportunity to test and verify the capabilities of the software for a spacecraft not developed by the development team:

  • CubeSat-on-Demand 443
  • FUNcube-2
  • myPocketQub 391
  • Spacecraft-on-Demand 444
  • and many more!
