By researching weather in the lower thermosphere using GNSS-Radio occultation techniques the main goal of this project is to develop a system to post-process the downloaded raw data into useful information using the L1 (single) GPS frequency. The GPS receiver will be located on the QB50 satellite in a LEO orbit. The aim of this experiment will be based on theory how to replicate, confirm and extend the CanX-2-RadioOccultation (Canadian Advanced Nanospace eXperiment) results on this project.
Throughout this thesis the possibilities and opportunities of this relatively new method of the remote sensing application will be presented. The objective of this project is to put together the methodology, theory and application of the GPS radio occultation theoretical concept, consider the advantages and disadvantages of CanX-2 RO mission with possibility to develop and implement similar techniques in the QB50-RO mission.
