Abstract

SRI International, in junction with University of Michigan, is working on the Radio Aurora eXplorer (RAX) mission. This mission aims to study the intensity of plasma irregularities in the aurora region's ionosphere. Our Major Qualifying Project was concerned with constructing a realistic simulation of the bi-static satellite-radar system of the mission and produce synthetic data. Moreover, it was also required to develop de-convolution algorithms to invert the synthetic data so as to deduce the intensity and magnetic field alignment information of the irregularities.
