SDOC (Small Desktop Optical Communication)
Major: Computer Graphics Technology
Genre/Medium: Arduino, 3D Printing
About the work: One of my favorite aspects of the Psyche mission is its use of the DSOC (Deep Space Optical Communication) system, which uses a laser transmitter to communicate with us on Earth. To show my appreciation for this technology, I have created a small desktop demonstration in which a pulsing laser transmits a 3D model of (16) Psyche to a receiver, which then displays the model as it is received.
