MO4006E - Antennas and propagation for GNSS


Detailed objectives:

At the end of the course, the student will be able to:
1 - Explain the electromagnetic radiation notion based on the equivalence theorem and various forms of radiation formulas
2 - List and use the characteristics of the antennas transmit and receive (radiation zone, polarization, gain, bandwidth, link budget,)
3 - Chose an antenna type based on the referred application
4 - Apply a modeling broad range (currently references offices) about the effects of propagation over the transmission of a signal
5 - Analyze the environment effects (masking, multipath) from statistics deterministic models
6 - Analyze the effects of the troposphere (absorption, refraction and scintillation)
7 - Analyze the effects of the ionosphere (absorption, refraction, scintillation, Faraday rotation, group delay, Doppler
