Space qualified Software Defined Radio (SDR) Platform (MK2) for Sensing and Communication Applications using powerful and advanced FPGA Technology

The SDR platform is utilized for a high-speed S-band ground link and for inter-satellite links utilizing S- or K band in a highly miniaturized radio system for long distance communication.

On GOMX-3 the SDR platform is used for signal sensing with an L-band antenna for spectrum characterization. Significant calculation capacity for advanced signal processing and detection techniques is available in a very compact design.

The FPGA module can be available for other advanced processing requirements such as image processing etc. utilizing the high capacity of the system. Software is available for in-orbit programming or applying scripting tools limiting size of program uploads.
