OOV TET1 Logo
The On-Orbit Verification (OOV) is a project of the German national space program. In order to verify new technologies in space, a generic satellite bus called TET is being developed, which is led by the Astro- und Feinwerktechnik Adlershof GmbH. It is based on the successful bus concept of the Bird satellite (Bi-Spectral Infra-Red Detection), which was launched in 2001.
The DLR institute of Simulation and Software Technology, as a subcontractor, adapts and extends the attitude control software of the Bird satellite to suit the requirements of TET-1 satellite bus. It is also responsible for the documentation. This new satellite bus differs from its predecessor by a changed onboard-data management. Also the sensors and actuators of the satellite have been modified and a new pay load has been added.
The software development works are done by using integrated software engineering tools for UML modeling, code generation, automated testing and for documentation generation. The development process is complemented with an independent system test and static code verification, in accordance to the requirements of the ECSS standards, which are mandatory for space projects.
The development of TET is completed and the satellite is ready for launch.
