Project Description

Software defined radios are a growing field in the communications realm.  It takes what is normally made with complex hardware, and performs the same tasks in software.  Our project is to make a software radio designed to be used in small satellite applications.  It will use a high speed processing chip (FPGA) and a new high tech radio chip.  We will demonstrate the function of the radio by sending live images from one computer to another using our system.
