This thesis details the development and validation procedures of the experiment control software to be used on the NPSAT1. The software developed for a standard Linux kernel instead of an expensive proprietary space computer system includes functions for satellite orbit prediction, precise satellite location, and adaptive experiment scheduling using inputs from the electrical power system, sub-satellite position, and sub-satellite local time.
