  • 3CAT-2, an experimental nano-satellite for GNSS-R earth observation: mission concept and analysis 

    Carreno-Luengo, Hugo; Camps Carmona, Adriano José; Muñoz, Joan Francesc; Vidal, David; Amézaga Sarries, Adrià; Bolet Alberto, Font; Jané, Jaume; Olivé, Roger; Carola, Jorge; Catarino, Nuno; Hagenfeldt, Miguel; Palomo, Pedro; Cornara, Stefania (2016-10-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    Global navigation satellite system reflectometry is a multistatic radar using navigation signals as signals of opportunity. It provides wide-swath and improved spatiotemporal sampling over current space-borne missions. The ...
  • ³CAT-2: attitude determination and control system for a GNSS-R earth observation 6U CubeSat mission 

    Cortiella, Alexandre; Vidal, David; Jané, Jaume; Juan, Enric; Olivé, Roger; Amézaga Sarries, Adrià; Muñoz, Joan Francesc; Via, Pol; Carreno-Luengo, Hugo; Camps Carmona, Adriano José (2016-09-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    This work describes the attitude determination and control system (ADCS) of ³CAT-2, a six-unit CubeSat scheduled for launch this 2016. The ADCS of 3CAT-2 aims at controlling the satellite in orbit and fulfilling the pointing ...

  • First dual-band multiconstellation GNSS-R scatterometry measurements over boreal forests from a stratospheric balloon 

    Carreno-Luengo, Hugo; Camps Carmona, Adriano José (2015-11-25)
    Article
    Open Access
    This work presents the first ever dual-frequency multiconstellation Reflectometry using Global Navigation Satellite Systems signals (GNSS-R) observations over boreal forests and lakes using GPS, GLONASS, and Galileo signals. ...
  • Implementation of a GNSS-R payload based on software defined radio for the 3CAT-2 mission 

    Olivé Muñiz, Roger; Amézaga Sarries, Adrià; Carreno-Luengo, Hugo; Hyuk, Park; Camps Carmona, Adriano José (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2016-10-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    The 3CAT-2 nanosatellite aims at demonstrating global navigation satellite system reflectometry (GNSS-R) techniques for spaceborne applications in the small form of a six-unit CubeSat. There are many challenges involved ...
