The Challenge

X Studios was tasked to work with a team of Cobham engineers to come up with a web based application that integrated with their hardware to control some of their satellite product line. A web application that controlled such expensive hardware required flawless execution. Needless to say, our team was very excited at the prospect of creating such a power web application.

Strategy & Approach

Cross-Platform Rich User Interface

One of the main objectives was to create a rich user interface that worked across all platforms including mobile browsers. High-level wireframes were first designed, in order to establish the overall layout. This allowed the Cobham engineers to work on the hardware aspects of integration while having a visual footprint of the interface.

Satellite Control Tools

A series of functional tools were created to assist satellite integrators in setting up their satellites via the web interface. A jog tool allows users to control the rotation of all mechanical aspects including the azimuth, elevation and pol adjustments, even from the convenience of a mobile phone or tablet. Controlling a satellite dish has never been more intuitive.

Diagnostics Center

Advanced diagnostic tools can alert the operator in real-time of all satellite related data. Some of the data displayed includes GPS data, strength of signal, and internal system messaging and more all from a web interface.
