Deliver to the RAAF AIS / ADS-B capability across the globe using COTS AIS and ADS-B systems.

Description

• Deliver to the RAAF AIS / ADS-B capability across the globe using COTS AIS and ADS-B systems.
• Test, validate and further develop Australian SSA capabilities by providing engineering design and performance data for the design of future passive radar systems to track LEO spacecraft.
• Develop and demonstrate software defined radio capability, which is used to support AIS and ADS-B
monitoring and recording and GNSS SDR receive capability for passive LEO tacking.
• Develop and demonstrate building-block technologies and CONOPS for future ADF space capabilities. Bespoke mechanical design supporting a large deployable model, a custom UNSW Canberra flight computer,
custom deployable antennae and custom software defined radio receivers.
