Title: Payload interposer (PIP) system and control software

Abstract

A payload interposer (PIP) system and its control software provide an interface between a space vehicle and a payload. The PIP board facilitates power and communications between a command and data handler (CDH) of the space vehicle and the payload. A microcontroller of the PIP board may control operation of the payload, format messages between the space vehicle and the payload, and extract data from the payload for downlink via the space vehicle.
