ABSTRACT: PES Institute of Technology along with five other institutions is developing a student imaging satellite. This serves students as a platform to understand and work with advanced space technologies. In this student satellite, we use the approach of component-based software methodology to code and test the software components. In this methodology, all the components are developed as independent components and then are integrated under On Board Computer (OBC) software. OBC is a custom built board centered on the processor where student satellite software runs in the OBC. This paper reports the testing methodology we are using and test cases generation for On Board Computer software of student satellite. These test cases are used to assure the functional correctness of OBT software components of the student satellite.
