Demonstrate GNSS reflectometry at low grazing angles for altimetry for sea ice detection using a new software-defined GNSS receiver.

Description

Demonstrate the technique of GNSS Reflectometry at low grazing angles for altimetry (primarily for sea ice detection) using a new software-defined GNSS receiver. Additionally, a miniaturised radiation dosimeter will also be tested in flight. System for so-called passive reflectometry, among other things, which allows for measurements of height to be carried out in the decimetre and centimetre range,
