Collect space weather data wirelessly from an energy harvesting RF tag.
Collect space weather data wirelessly from an energy harvesting RF tag. Demonstrate data collection with different distances between the reader and tag. Provide sustained data throughout the satellite’s life RFTSat subsystems will be built primarily using commercial off the shelf (COTS) components. Test a system for deploying small, wireless sensor tags from the spacecraft that harvest RF energy and communicate with the spacecraft using a backscatter radio.
