Thank you so much for the prompt response. I have gone through the Start up
guide for the participating students and I can see that writing the
proposal is quite a rigorous process in this case.

Hence, I would like to pitch my project idea to you in a couple sentences.
It is a humble request to you to tell me if this idea is eligible for a
proposal or if it is completely off the topic:

*We, at the Satellite Technology Laboratory, are working on Chip-scale
*At this juncture, we have a TI CC430 Microcontroller that I need to
program so that it can actively communicate with the ground station i.e.
send encoded data and be decoded/filtered at the ground station. We have a
USRP at the Lab to be our ground station for testing purposes. *
*I need to write the code that will enable the CC430 to receive data from
the GPS chip, process it and send it down to the ground station.*

Please let me know if the idea is worth writing a proposal for.
Please feel free to be honest. Any kind of suggestion/criticism is welcome.

Thanks and regards,
Namrata Kamte
