The student will participate in the design and COTS (commercial off-the-shelf) implementation of a second generation RF front-end for integrated avionics systems. The RF front-end will operate at the L-band (from 1 to 2 GHz) and will allow simultaneous reception and transmission of several avionics systems, such as DME, ADS-B, and the transponder Mode-S. In addition, a custom communications system working either at the 900-MHz ISM band or at the ARNS band will be accounted. The student will participate in the implementation of the system and in-lab testing as well. The test plan and results will be documented and sent to the governmental authorities for ground and flight tests approval.
