The International Commercial Experiment (ICE) Cubes Service is meant to facilitate running scientific experiments in the environment of the low Earth orbit. The objective of the activity was to provide a common electronics platform and a main computer for use by ESA on board the ISS ICE Cube Facility.

The main technical objectives were related to managing the downstream payload devices in various ways. The OBCU was to provide communication channels to each device and ways for the system operator to inspect and manipulate the state of the devices, including their power status, voltage and current readouts and thresholds. One of its major tasks was also to collect telemetry data from them and store it in a persistent memory for later retrieval by the operator. This in conjunction with implementation of several standard PUS services, including PUS11, enables autonomous carrying out of dynamically pre-defined mission objectives as well.
