Radio waterfall experiment and analyze RF reception capabilities from LEO.


First is a waterfall experiment which will show an image in the waterfall diagram by hopping the frequency within its transmission band (image-type beacon). We will try correlation algorithms on this signal to find out if we can detect it under weak signal conditions. The second experiment is to analyze RF reception capabilities from LEO with a novel detector receiver and a small patch antenna. It was designed to test if small satellite receivers which don´t need deployable antennas are feasible.
