Test a boom and antenna spooling and deployment mechanism to support a matched very low frequency (VLF) antenna.

Description

Square loop antenna with a total length of 16 m to characterise the VLF (1-­32 kHz) waves. Test a boom and antenna spooling and deployment mechanism to support a matched very low frequency (VLF) antenna receiver pair and experimentally quantify VLF electromagnetic wave propagation through the lower ionosphere.
