In this talk, we will be presenting a Flight Log of our experience on designing, building and hacking around satellite and communication technologies.
This process gave birth on Jun 2014 to BugSat-1, aka Tita (greeks
Theta Θ), a 22Kg Satellite carrying, between others things, six Debian On-Board computers in charge of dealing with the satellite's Payload and Flight Mission.
We will be diving through the technology hacked to make Debian able to cope with high latency bandwidth, and also we'll be introducing ddpatch, a debian package minimalization tool intended to optimize communications throughput. Enjoy!
