Embeded Software

Electronics  have gained a place of prime importance over the years. Besides computers,  mankind is dependent on scores of other machines to carry out their jobs,  reduce labor, to travel, to protect etc. As these kinds of machines gain a strong  foothold in the market, software to protect and help it function better also  emerges. Sankya’s  Embedded Software is one such solution. It basically plays a very vital role in  a machine’s electronic component making it work fast and effectively.

Star Sensor Based On-orbit Satellite Attitude Estimation Software

Sankya’s Star Sensor based On-orbit Satellite Attitude Estimation Software is an embedded software for on-orbit estimation of satellite direction parameter using data of the star location and image. It was developed for a 16-bit processor and the application has an optimized organization of star catalog for low memory and fast access, a quaternion based parameter structure to avoid trigonometric functions and singularity points, a geometric tracking method for fast and error free star identification and simple attitude propagation model. Sankya’s solution is made such that it is operational on two satellites.
The attitude of a satellite is the orientation with respect to a definite frame of reference and Sankya uses the stellar bodies. The external forces generally force the attitude dynamics to change. But Sankya’s software solution uses attitude determination by using star sensors to ascertain the new and current attitude. By doing so, the readings are always accurate in spite of shift in position.

Satellite Aviation Application on RTX 2010 Microcontroller

A software embedded into an RTX 2010 micro controller for on-orbit estimation of precision Yaw and Roll of a satellite from sun sensor measurements. It is made to be operational on two satellites.

 

Compiler Evaluation for Embedded Applications Development

Sankya uses the Compiler Evaluation technology for its embedded application development ensuring that they give their clients the latest technology in the market. Electronics have gained a place of prime importance over the years. Besides computers, mankind is dependent on scores of other machines to carry out their jobs, reduce labor, to travel, to protect etc. As these kinds of machines gain a stronger and stronger foothold in the market, software to protect and help it function better also emerges. Embedded software basically plays a very vital role in a machine’s electronic component making it work fast and effectively.
Sankya develops critical embedded applications on RTX 2010 micro controller using its assembly language, which has many FORTH equivalent words i.e. a stack-based computer is programming language making it easier to be handled and controlled. The assembler is then appraised for its performance vis-à-vis its documentation and processor hardware in order to develop a software for on-orbit space applications.
