smart rings Payload plan
The payload or transmission plan specifies what the spacecraft payload is intended to perform. The goal is to allow the payload engineer to define the entire payload desired configuration from a single interface .
It is in the payload plan where the payload engineer defines which transponders are active, which channels are received from which antennae and which channels to downlink to a specific place. This obviously depends on the actual payload features so the payload plan module must be adapted for every payload as well as the customer way of operating the payload.
