2nd Workshop on SPECTRUM SURVEY for Signals from SPACE, SPECTRAL ANALYSIS, and SIGNAL PROCESSING
SPACE SPECTRUM SURVEY 2012
15th and 16th November 2012, German Aerospace Center (DLR), Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany
The aim of this workshop is to provide a scientific and technological forum for the important topic of spectrum survey of space signals. Furthermore, the workshop shall provide vital information and means for space agencies and other entities in order to support space engineering and planning of future space missions (e.g. link budget consolidations, regulatory issues, science & earth observation, space operations, further development of technologies ). As space frequency bands are more and more occupied by unintentional interfering signals, spectral observations in these bands are now quasi-mandatory for space engineering; that is the design of new air-interfaces using signals transmitted between the earth and satellites, e.g. (Argos evolutions, global navigation satellite systems (GNSS) evolution, new telemetry, tracking and command (TT&C) systems, etc …) or the design of scientific passive spaceborne radio observation systems (radiometers, reflectometers, … ). The considered space signals are therefore signals transmitted from space, or signals received by space platforms for scientific or operational purposes. The considered spectrum monitoring hardwares could be located on earth, airborne, spaceborne, …The contributions to this workshop shall mainly focus on space spectrum survey including hardware and software, as well as spectral anaylsis and signal processing methods. The workshop will be free of charge.
