Abstract : The purpose of the report is to present a detailed description of the systems involved in processing the experimental information recorded on the OV3-6 satellite. The system is designed to bridge the gap between the successful design of an experiment; the launch of the vehicle; the data collection; the telemetering of the data to ground stations; and the scientist. In general, the techniques developed to process, smooth and analyze the telemetry data were designed to meet the data characteristics and the needs of each experiment, but were designed to be general in nature whenever possible.
