With the increase in numbers of Space Exploration, the Earth's Orbit is now become populated with man made debris. This increased amount of Debris have imposed threats to newer space mssions. Although, Remote detection Techniques of space debris and putting them into catalogues can help avoiding spacecrafts with major collisions, the smallest and undetectable particles are of constant threats for both future current and missions. In situ measurements is the only option remained to detect and map those smaller pieces of chunks orbitting with the same speed as other spacecrafts. The Technosat Satellite is a NanoSatellite developed by DLR Bremen and TU BErlin has a secondary goal to fly SOLID instrument in order to detect in situ Particle Impacts. The aim of this thesis work is to implement the and Test the SOLID instruments working princliple by means of interfacing, prototype testing and generating simuated results to visualize the impact details on Ground.
