—We will show that ocean-reflected signals from the global positioning system (GPS) navigation satellite constellation can be detected from a low-earth orbiting satellite and that these signals show rough correlation with independent measurements of the sea winds. We will present waveforms of ocean-reflected GPS signals that have been detected using the(More)

As part of the EV-2 Cyclone Global Navigation Satellite System (CYGNSS) mission team, Surrey will be providing the Delay Doppler Mapping Instrument (DDMI) for eight Observatories designed and built by the University of Michigan and Southwest Research Institute (SwRI). Following the success of the GPS ReOectometry Experiment on the UK­ DMC 1 satellite(More)
In this paper we analyse the GPS signals reflected by the surface of the ocean to retrieve information about the sea surface roughness, expressed in statistical terms by means of the sea surface Mean Square Slopes (MSS). Particularly, we perform Delay-Doppler mapping of real scattered GPS signals from the Surrey Satellite Technolody Ltd UK-DMC mission , and(More)
Data on albacore tuna catches within the New Zealand EEZ from 1993 to 2004, derived from Tuna Longline Catch Effort Returns and Catch Effort landing Returns, were used to model catch per unit effort (CPUE) for the longline and troll fisheries, respectively, and hence to generate standardised CPUE indices by year and quarter. In addition to operational data(More)
This paper presents the latest development in SSTL's successful SGR range of Space GNSS Receivers. The SGR-ReSI (Remote Sensing Instrument) is a highly versatile and uniquely capable GNSS receiver that has been designed with the low-cost, microsatellite market in mind. Based on COTS parts, the SGR-ReSI builds on the expertise SSTL and SSC have developed in(More)
1. ABSTRACT Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) such as Global Positioning System (GPS) or Galileo provide ubiquitous signals, which can be exploited for Earth Observation. Successful use of reflected GPS signals to measure ocean wind and waves was demonstrated recently for the first time with data from a dedicated receiver on a Low Earth Orbiting(More)
This paper discusses the new GNSS receiver architecture being designed by SSTL, and its preparation for use in space. The first application is the SGR-ReSI experiment that will be flying on the TechDemoSat-1 mission in 2013. This will allow the collection of GPS Reflected signals for validating ocean models, and also an early prototype service to notify(More)
