Notice: On June 30, 2016, UMWiki service will be decommissioned. If you have information in UMWIki that needs to be preserved, you should make plans to move it before that date. Google Sites is anticipated to be the most popular and appropriate alternative for users because it offers a more modern and user-friendly interface and unlimited capacity. To learn more about the features of Google Sites and other alternatives, and to identify which one best fits your needs, see the University’s Website Solution Selection Guide. If you have concerns or would like help regarding this change and your options, please contact Technology Help at help@umn.edu

Objective: Operational concept will describe end-to-end data flow from lander and from camera back to Earth, including a timeline, data rates, the usage of on-board data storage, and the contact times.

Post work/documents regarding the detailed data flow analysis. We will need to know how fast the connections are between components, file sizes, data transfer rates, etc. We should be able to figure this out fairly quickly. Our goal should be to run a MATLAB simulation that will show that we can collect information, save it, and transfer it back to Earth so that we have enough memory to save the next day's data. We might want to write two versions of this simulation, one for images and one for lander data. I think we should shoot to simulate a week's worth of data collection and transmission. One day would be the absolute minimum to show that our system works, but if we can write it for one day I don't think seven would be much more difficult.

28 Gbits data storage
Uncompressed image size: 3400320000 bits (3.4 Gbits)
LUT compressed image size: 1943040000 bits (1.9 Gbits)
Data rate to SSR: 24 Mbps (this should be the slowest step in the process)

160 Gbits BOL data storage
Data rate from camera: 24 Mbps
Data rate from rover: ?
FELICS compressed image size: 1214400000 bits (1.2 Gbits)
Data rate out (to computer/radio?): Selectable - 1, 5, 10, 20, 30 Mbps

Data rate in: ?
Data rate out: ?
Other important things...

Maybe we could directly connect the SSR directly to the radio(s) and use the computer to tell the SSR what data to send the radio/where to store data received from the radio. This would take the computer out of the data flow model and it would not have to process large data files. We should talk to Raja/Dave about this.
