RECEIVING AND ANALYZING SATELLITE BEACONS¶
You are on the Receiving and Analyzing Satellite Beacons project page. This project was done during the SCS Master of 2015-2016.
You will find below the table of contents of our project's report.
At first we begin with a state of the art of beacon reception. In this part, we define what is beacon satellite signal and why it is used. Also, a brief history is described to show how this topic has been developed during several decades and how its usages have evolved. Then, we describe briefly how beacon signal can be received.
The second part is dedicated to explain in details how we have achieved to receive satellite beacon's and the tools we have used in terms of hardware and software.
Finally, we test our satellite beacon power receiver, display results and graphs then analyze the causes of power received variation seen during this project. After that, we conclude with some remarks, perspectives and recommended improvements.
