This document describes and summarizes the design process carried out in Institut de Ciències de l'Espai to define the baseline architecture of the Telescope Control Unit for the next possible M4 ESA mission: Atmospheric Remote-sensing Exoplanet Large-survey (a.k.a. ARIEL), as well as a more accurate study of its thermal subsystem, as Final Degree Project for the Barcelona University. The document shows the work done in ARIEL mission, as well as the work done for the FDP: the analysis of possible solutions for the thermal subsystem, the selection of components and their expected behavior, the hardware and software design of the acquisition board as well as its implementation and test, respecting space qualified engineering methodologies. It excludes an exhaustive description of the off-the-shelf digital system Red Pitaya and accurate space qualifications tests, due to the prototype status of the implemented acquisition board

The study is part of a project funded by the European Union thanks to the program Marie Curie Career Integration Grant entitled Gravitational Wave Detectors Low-Frequency Technology Test Bed (GRLOW). The study has been performed at the installations of Institut de Ciencies de l’Espai(CSIC-IEEC). The main objective for GRLOW is to achieve an optical metrology with a picometer sensitivity for low frequencies by means of a deep phase modulation interferometry technique. Field-Programable Gate Array (FPGA) incuding a LEON3 soft-core processor with the purpose of develop a real time function fitting, getting out results at the moment. The interferometer has to be nested inside an ultra-stable environment to eliminate perturbations. The perturbations that can disturb the interferometer are air particles and temperature fluctuations. Here is where our study takes place: we want to achieve a ultra-stable thermal environment attenuating, by the vacuum chamber and thermal shields, or controlling, by a proportional-derivative-integral temperature controller, perturbations that may occur in the lab. Finally, our aim is to determinate the contribution of the temperature noise into the interferometer.

This article presents the development of an app for Android devices in response to the needs/following the needs of the IEEC to present its projects and other useful information. Its content is nicely organized and it explains the analysis, the approaches and the methodology used to find and implement a solution to this problem, it is implemented using a client-server paradigm and it is explained by the definition, logical and structural, of the components that form it. Finally, possible variations in the implementation and the final conclusions are presented.

Gravitational waves are ripples of space-time produced by movement of massive bodies accelerated, were predicted by Albert Einstein in 1916, as result of his theory of general relativity. Because the interaction of these type of gravitational waves is of low intensity, they are difficult to detect. Gravitational Wave Low Frequency Technologies test-bed (GRLOW) project, wich belongs to scientific projects of Institut d'Estudis Espacials de Catalunya and Institut de Ciències de l'Espai (IEEC/ICE), investigates technologically the second generation detectors of gravitational waves. This software engineering project is about how to perform analysis, design and prototype software control for GRLOW project to perform experimentation of testing laboratory.
