Abstract

Abstract

  • 1983 Global Positioning Systems (GPS) were made available to the public

  • People rely heavily on GPS today

  • Goal: Implement a temporary system in the event the satellites become inoperable

  • Proposed Solution: VHF Omnidirectional Radial (VOR)


Long term sponsor goal

Long Term Sponsor Goal

  • Use high altitude balloons to function as temporary satellites


Introduction

Introduction

  • Problems to be Solved

    • Provide an alternative solution to GPS failure

  • Past Projects/Customer Needs

    • No groups at Wright State University have attempted this project

    • Any person/business who wants a backup to GPS

  • Our Customers/Market Volume

    • Anybody in the government/private sector relies on GPS

    • Market volume would be high due to the fact GPS is so widely used

  • Demand

    • There is no backup system currently implemented so the government/private sector would be interested in this product


  • Constraints

    Constraints

    • Laws

      • FCC and HAM radio license rules. Additionally, Federal Aviation Administration rules must be adhered to.

    • Manufacturing/Sustainability

      • Lightweight

      • Sustain weather conditions (i.e. temperature, high wind, precipitation)

      • Withstand Landing

    • Cost

      • This project has to meet certain budget criteria, but our funds are sufficient due to our sponsors


    Project goals deliverables

    Project Goals/Deliverables

    • Implement a VOR positioning system as a supplement to GPS.

      • Plan A – Track balloon location using VOR radials from three different stations

      • Plan B – Similar to Plan A, signal strength will be used to triangulate a position


    Project goals deliverables1

    Project Goals/Deliverables


    Project goals deliverables2

    Project Goals/Deliverables

    • Short Term Goals:

      • Small Scale

        • Implement phase shift/signal strength positioning in the laboratory

      • Moderate Scale

        • Implement phase shift/signal strength positioning around/near campus

      • Large Scale

        • Implement phase shift/signal strength at altitude with balloon


    Potential difficulties

    Potential Difficulties

    • The transmitting signal does not produce a strong enough signal to analyze

    • Equipment for VOR is highly specialized to aircraft instruments

    • The lack of fox hunting skills


    Project plan and schedule

    Project Plan and Schedule

    • Scheduled meeting times: Wednesday and Saturday

    • Launch Dates and other meetings subject to existing HAB team launches


    Proposed budget

    Proposed Budget

    • This project has negligible budget concerns due to sponsor interest

    • At this point in the schedule we have not determined all necessary parts we need.


    Sponsors

    Sponsors

    • The Ohio Space Grant Consortium (OSGC)

    • Wright State University Curriculum Development Grant

    • National Science Foundation (NSF)
