The Swisscube mission is known for the being the first Swiss spacecraft mission. EATOPS joined that effort and operated the spacecraft from its Noordwijk CubeSat ground station (KD2AMA) facility. The com system is based on a AX.25 protocol. The telecommands are encapsulated into the CCSDS PUS format.

Mobile control panels for Civil Defense Sirens

EATOPS worked on the preliminary design of a portable control panel to activate the civil defense siren system in Norway. The touch control panel is designed following a 3-click navigation approach to activate the x1300 sirens at the country-region-district and sub-district level.

 

A control room layout solution (in a pre-study phase) monitors a broader range of assignments connected to major or special incidents (fires, natural catastrophes, oil protection, searches, evacuation, etc...).
