Via Satellite 10-28-2015] NASA has selected the Chair and Professor of Ohio State’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering Joel Johnson to lead an agency program to help mitigate the impact of manmade Radio Frequency Interference (RFI). The agency awarded the university $5.6 million for the CubeSat Radiometer RFI Technology Validation (CubeRRT) mission, which aims to demonstrate RFI technologies for Earth-sensing microwave radiometers, enabling scientists to remotely sense global properties such as soil moisture, atmospheric water vapor, sea surface temperature and sea surface winds.
“Successful RFI mitigation by CubeRRT will not only improve the possibility of microwave radiometry in an RFI intensive environment, but may also allow future systems to operate over a larger bandwidth resulting in lower measurement noise,” said Johnson…..READ MORE
