ACSER upgrades satellite receiver for new applications
The University of New South Wales has produced an advanced satellite receiver that accepts GPS and Galileo signals. This locally developed technology could play an important role in Australia’s space future.
This receiver accepts signals from two satellite systems, GPS and Galileo, across multiple frequencies. The Australian Space Agency provided funding via the International Space Investment initiative.
Professor Andrew Dempster, Director of the Australian Centre for Space Engineering Research (ACSER) at the University of New South Wales, led the development of the receiver.
The end product is an advanced receiver capable of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) reflectometry. This is a remote sensing technique where signals are reflected from the Earth’s surface to study environmental conditions over land and sea, such as floods and storms.
