Research Institution

Space Micro, together with its partner, CACI National Systems and Innovative Solutions (NSIS) proposes to develop a space-qualified RF payload for nanosatellites that passively collects RF signals over a wide bandwidth, identifying signals of interest by their spectrum, captures and time stamps these signals of interest, and – alone or together with other satellites or ground-based assets geo-locates them. The payload hardware consists of a wideband Software Defined Radio (SDR), wideband antenna and accurate timing system. Using this hardware, CACI’s digital signal processing algorithms identify signals of interest. The payload, with stowed antenna fits in, and can be powered by a 16U CubeSat standard bus.
