GPS Scatterometry

Signals-of-Opportunity (SoP) are those signals already exist giving us an opportunity to use them for a secondary purpose rather than the main application defined for them. GPS signals are among SoPs since they’re basically developed for positioning purposes but can be used for remote sensing purposes.

Studying “reflected GPS Signals” off any surface reflecting GPS signals is GPS-Reflectometry. Soil, snow, plants, ice, oceans, and permafrost are just some examples.

GPS-Scatterometrists are interested in collecting these reflections by reflectometry sensors designed as ground-based antennas or aerial/spacial payloads.

We talk about it here! Paper critiques, plain-language articles, videos, interviews, and more. Stay with us!
