IO Interface for Reading CCSDS Data in Python.
CCSDSPy - IO Interface for Reading CCSDS Data in Python.
This community-developed package provides a Python interface for reading tightly packed bits in the Consultative Committee for Space Data Systems (CCSDS) format used by many NASA and ESA missions. The library is developed with requirements sourced from the community and extensive automated testing.
To install ccsdspy
pip install ccsdspy
The following example shows how simple it is to read in fixed length CCSDS packets.
import ccsdspy from ccsdspy import PacketField, PacketArray pkt = ccsdspy.FixedLength([ PacketField(name='SHCOARSE', data_type='uint', bit_length=32), PacketField(name='SHFINE', data_type='uint', bit_length=20), PacketField(name='OPMODE', data_type='uint', bit_length=3), PacketField(name='SPACER', data_type='fill', bit_length=1), PacketField(name='VOLTAGE', data_type='int', bit_length=8), PacketArray( name='SENSOR_GRID', data_type='uint', bit_length=16, array_shape=(32, 32), array_order='C' ), ]) result = pkt.load('mypackets.bin')
