End of December, before leaving for the Xmas break, all our students went through project #1 defences (a.k.a Project “Basic Techniques”).
Before moving on to project #3 (a.k.a “Services and applications”), it is a good time to highlight some of these Project #1 outcomes.
Hussein and Kogulan have been tracking geostationary beacon signals using software defined radio.
Gérald and Ramon contributed to further improve our antenna facilities. They evaluated and tested an RF-to-optical transceiver that is now used to connect one of our dishes with the indoor unit.
Antoine and Thibaut have designed and developed a signal analyser based on one of our software defined radio platforms.
Finally, Adriana and Alexander have emulated a “not unlike DVB-S” communication chain based on – guess what – software defined radio and a new toolchain we have in the lab called LabVIEW Communication Design Suite.
