Abstract
There are three specific objectives in this Phase II proposal. The first objective is to expand on the new aspects of the science and RF remote sensing abilities of unintentional signals in space environments. A second objective is to continue development of a wideband unintentional signal receiver and deliver it as a capability in pursuit of characterizing satellites. The third objective is to design a receiver that takes the uncovered new science aspects of space environment RF remote sensing and factors in lessons learned on the developed wideband receiver into a joint-capabilities receiver design that includes all applicable signal types of narrowband, wideband, and "quasi-narrowband" unintentional signals. Our study plan shows specific tasking to achieve these three objectives and contribute to on-going government activities in a highly iterative fashion.
