This paper focuses on the design and functional test of the imaging compression software for TUUSAT-1A micro satellite. The functional requirements of the imaging compression software will be defined according to the mission requirements of TUUSAT-1A. A JPEG format of image will be adopted as the algorism of imaging compression. The compression software is developed with C language and is stored in the onboard flight computer MPC-555. We test the compression efficiency and to obtain the proper compression rate. The imaging control logic will be also developed and stored in the flight software of onboard computer.
