Microwave radiometer for SatCom ground stations
Research Project , 2012 – 2020

The project aims at designing and developing the prototype of a miniaturised microwave radiometer to be used as a channel assessment instrument in the ground segment of Satellite Communications systems and in SatCom propagation campaigns. The prototype will represent a step towards the development of a commercial unit aimed at SatCom applications including propagation campaigns. The project objective is to develop a microwave radiometer system that is optimised for operational use in SatCom ground stations. The MWR shall be optimised in terms of purchase and maintenance cost, mass, dimensions and power consumption and it shall be easy to maintain and operate.
