Autonomous software-defined radio receivers for deep space by Jon Hamkins, Marvin K. Simon, Joseph H. Yuen

By Jon Hamkins, Marvin K. Simon, Joseph H. Yuen

This ebook introduces the reader to the idea that of an independent software-defined radio (SDR) receiver. every one distinctive point of the layout of the receiver is taken care of in a separate bankruptcy written by way of a number of prime innovators within the box. Chapters commence with an issue assertion after which supply an entire mathematical derivation of a suitable resolution, a choice metric or loop-structure as acceptable, and function effects.

Space Science & Technology in China: A Roadmap to 2050

As one of many eighteen field-specific reviews comprising the great scope of the strategic basic record of the chinese language Academy of Sciences, this sub-report addresses long-range making plans for constructing technology and know-how within the box of house technological know-how. They every one craft a roadmap for his or her sphere of improvement to 2050.

Relativity and Engineering

The most characteristic of this booklet is the emphasis on "practice". This process, strange within the relativistic literature, might be clarified through quoting a few difficulties mentioned within the textual content: - the research of rocket acceleration to relativistic velocities - the impact of gravitational fields at the accuracy of time measurements - the operation of optical rotation sensors - the review of the Doppler spectrum produced by means of the linear (or ro- tional) movement of an antenna or scatterer - using the Cerenkov influence within the layout of millimeter-wave strength turbines - the impact of the movement of a plasma at the transmission of electrom- netic waves via this medium.

Geostationary Satellites Collocation

Geostationary Satellites Collocation goals to discover recommendations for deploying a secure and trustworthy collocation keep an eye on. concentrating on the orbital perturbation research, the mathematical foundations for orbit and keep an eye on of the geostationary satellite tv for pc. The mathematical and actual precept of orbital maneuver and collocation thoughts for multi geostationary satellites sharing with an identical useless band is usually under pressure.

The Birth of NASA: The Work of the Space Task Group, America’s First True Space Pioneers

This can be the tale of the paintings of the unique NASA house pioneers; women and men who have been abruptly prepared in 1958 from the then nationwide Advisory Committee on Aeronautics (NACA) into the gap job staff. a comparatively small team, they constructed the preliminary challenge proposal plans and approaches for the U.

Finally, an adaptive algorithm based on the modified SSME was developed that allows the system to automatically converge on the true SNR, starting with an initial guess (estimate) derived from a partition of two subdivisions. 4 Frequency Tracking We present a robust frequency-tracking loop for a residual-carrier system that is capable of tracking the offset frequency without knowledge of received SNR. The proposed frequency-tracking loop can operate robustly not only over an AWGN channel but also over a Rayleigh fading channel.

A critical issue with this approach is the impact of the AGC on the operation of the ADC as well as the internal digital arithmetic implemented in the FPGA. Ideally the input ADC voltage is scaled to achieve an optimal trade-off between ADC quantization noise and clipping distortion. In contrast, the AGC loop attempts to maintain the complex magnitude of the CTL arm-filter outputs to be unity on average. Thus, there is no guarantee that this criterion of unity rootmean-square (rms) CTL arm-filter outputs will enable the ADC to operate at its optimal input scaling (loading) point or even prevent the ADC from saturating.

3 Estimators and Classifiers of the Autonomous Radio After identifying the proper order for the estimator modules shown in Fig. 1-3, a design for the individual modules can begin. At first glance, it may seem that some of these estimator modules are simply long-established, conventional designs. For example, phase-tracking loops have been designed and analyzed for nearly every reasonable signal type. However, the authors were unable to find any literature for the design of a phase-tracking loop for suppressedcarrier signals in which the modulation type is unknown.
