The National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) Soil Moisture Active and Passive (SMAP) mission, which was launched on January 31, 2015, is providing global measurements of soil moisture and freeze/thaw state. The SMAP radiometer operates within the protected Earth Exploration Satellite Service passive frequency allocation of 1400-1427 MHz. However, unauthorized in-band transmitters and out-of-band emissions from transmitters operating at frequencies adjacent to this allocated… CONTINUE READING
