Abstract

SRI International recently developed a new ionospheric imaging method which utilizes a network of 9 hard-wired GPS receivers. The task of this project was to design a renewable power system and communications network to support autonomous operation of the GPS receivers. This project drew considerably upon solar power system design, embedded microprocessor programming, and communications theory. The report prepared develops the initial stages of deploying this network, documents the prototyping and design process, and provides recommendations for future work.
