Command and Data Handling
CDH is the central hub for communication and computation on the satellite. Using a single board computer, CDH executes the ACS algoritms and writes low-level software to control the spacecraft hardware.

Structures and Survivability
This team is responsible for designing, analyzing, and manufacturing all mechanical components of the satellite as well as the logistics of the internal components. The are also responsible for analyzing and controlling the satellite's thermal, electrical and vibrational environment on the ground, during launch, and in orbit. Analyses include EMI, atomic oxygen, venting, structural, and thermal.

The Violet Satellite project employs Systems Engineering extensively. The Systems group is largely responsible for providing the project with direction by creating top level system requirements, creating best practices, maintaining communications, making design choices, and creating processes to ensure a successful product.

Telemetry and Communications
T+C is responsible for satellite to ground communications. T+C uses modified commercial radios operating in amateur frequency bands to transmit and receive data and commands between the satellite and the ground stations.
