Project located in Canada. It was launched in October 2016 and the main goal was to develop new cognitive systems, digital signal processing techniques to resolve satellite link reference and simulation, and testbench verification tools.
The Research and Development Program is over a four-year period and is part of a consortium led by l’Ecole de Technologie, (ETS - School of Higher Technology – University of Quebec) and LASSENA, its Space Technology, Embedded Systems, Navigation and Avionics Laboratory and our Canadian university and research partners (UQAM – French Canadian public university, Concordia University, Polytechnique Montreal, NSERC - Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, INRS – National Institute of Scientific Research, CRIAC – Consortium for Research and Innovation in Aerospace in Quebec) and industrialists (Thales, Vigilant, Telesat …).
The company develops techniques for interference reduction or avoidance that affect satellite communications.
The main goal was to develop new cognitive systems, digital signal processing techniques to resolve satellite link reference and simulation, and testbench verification tools. The project must lead to the implementation of a proof-of-concept hardware / software prototype validating interference elimination through a radio frequency interface (RFI) and anti-jamming tools for the aerospace industry.
The development of a database of RFI sources and locations updated in real-time by RFI measurement and monitoring modules also fall within the specifications.
