AAUSAT3 - AIS2

under construction

AIS2 is an AIS receiver based on an Blackfinn 53x series DSP serviced by an ARM7.

In generalized terms it samples the base band signal in the mega hertz area. Next signal analysis is carried out and AIS telegrams is extracted. It has the side effect that both AIS channels are received and decoded at same time.

So AIS2 is already now capable of receiving new upcoming AIS channels located in the proximity of the already existing channels.


Maintenance

AIS2 is basically a Linux system and new SW and applications can be uploaded during the mission. Standard protocols like sftp, ssh etc are available :-)
