Study Ionospheric dispersion of Radio Pulses.


CubeSat VHF transmitter to study Ionospheric dispersion of Radio Pulses. Antenna would transmit wideband Very High Frequency (VHF) 30-300 MHz pulses through the ionosphere to a ground receiver. The objective of the mission would be to verify dispersion algorithms and to quantify the day-to-day variability of the ionosphere as a function of geophysical inputs required for the advancement of charged particle astronomy.
