The ISEE-3, launched in 1978, chased comets and explored the inner solar system. In 2014, after 17yrs of silence as it passed around the Sun, radio contact was re-established.
Partnering with the ISEE-3 Reboot Project and Google Creative Lab, I was tasked with studying a 400+ page NASA mission manual from the early 70’s and engineering an infrastructure that could:
1) Consume live telemetry feeds from collaborating radio dishes
2) Research and decode the sub-commutated bitstream of engineering and science telemetry, designing suitable data models for storage
3) Design and engineer a publicly accessible API for "citizen scientists" to query the collected data.
Engineered at The Barbarian Group. Built using Python.
