TRSI-Sat [My Radar]

TRSI-Sat is a picosatellite developed by My Radar to the 1P PocketQube form factor.

TRSI-Sat features two experiments:

  • First is a waterfall experiment which will show an image in the waterfall diagram by hopping the frequency within its transmission band (image-type beacon). The experiment will try out correlation algorithms on this signal to find out if it can be detected under weak signal conditions.
  • The second experiment is to analyze RF reception capabilities from LEO with a novel detector receiver and a small patch antenna. It was designed to test if small satellite receivers which donīt need deployable antennas are feasible.

The satellite was launched on 6 December 2019 together with other PocketQubes and other satellites on an Electron KS launch vehicle.
