Monitor communications emissions from geostationary satellites.


Auris, which is latin for “the ear”, is tasked with listening to radio frequency emissions from spacecraft in a high orbit and spatially mapping the power radiated from these satellites to analyze how it will impact ground receivers. Another project funded by the Air Force Research Laboratory’s University Nanosatellite Program; the Auris Spacecraft will be a small, low-cost technology demonstrator that is designed to monitor and attribute telecommunications signals that may interfere with a congested space environment.
