Abstract : The PANSAT Software Groundstation enables a user to command and control PANSAT once it is in space, provided he has an IBM-compatible and WindowsOR or Windows NTOR capable computer with a serial interface and the necessary additional hardware. Via the implemented PAN SAT Command Language (PCL), the user will be able to access all PANSAT commands, thus control it, gather telemetry data or use its mail storing capability in an easy-to-use manner typical for Windows-based applications.
