Software defined radio for ground and airborne GNSS reflectometry
Paper in proceedings, 2018

Software defined radio (SDR) appears as a suitable solution for dedicated GNSS reflectometry (GNSS-R) applications. Not only does the flexibility of SDR allow for easy and rapid prototyping, but also do recent technological developments of SDR front-ends support real-time operation of GNSS-R. Our presentation includes a discussion about the technical aspects of SDR for GNSS-R and we show results from a ground-based GNSS-R SDR receiver which was operated continuously over a more than a month at the Onsala Space Observatory. A summary of our current activities in relation to airborne GNSS-R solutions and initial results in the form of Delay-Doppler Maps (DDMs) will conclude the presentation.
