SALSA - Spectrum Analysis of LEO Satellite Allocations
Point of Contact


The number of satellites launched into Low Earth Orbit (LEO) has significantly increased over the last 10 years. Today, more than 100 small satelites are launched each year. With this increase in numbers, some challenges regarding interference-free communications occur. Since the available frequency spectrum for TT&C is limited, the potential for harmful interference is raised. Some operators have already reported their problems, however the causal research is often not easy. A terrestrial measurement of interference and noise levels is not sufficient, since the satellite in orbit can be disturbe by signals that can not be seen on the ground.

For this reason, in the project SALSA a payload for spectrum analysis will be designed, built and qualified. The project is planned to be finished after 15 months starting from October 2016. Besides the development of payload hardware and software, a concept for integration into different satellite buses (e.g. BEESAT bus, TUBiX-10 bus) will be prepared.
