  1. Co-op Exit Presentation Reeve Ingle EV7 – Systems Analysis & Verification Branch Electronic Systems Test Laboratory (ESTL) December 11, 2006

  2. Presentation Overview • Personal Background • Previous Co-op Tours • EV7 Projects • Fourier Analysis of FSK Square Wave • Internet Protocol Research • Experience Gained • Co-op Activities • Future Plans • Acknowledgements • Questions 2

  3. Personal Background • Hometown: Carrollton, Georgia • Graduated from Carrollton High School in 2003 • Valedictorian in class of 250 students • Eagle Scout • Senior at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, Georgia • Electrical Engineering Major, Spanish Minor • Outstanding ECE Sophomore Award, Dean’s List • Teaching Assistant – Mathematics & Spanish Courses • IEEE • Eta Kappa Nu Electrical Engineering Honor Society • Tau Beta Pi Engineering Honor Society • Graduate in Spring 2008 3

  4. First Co-op Tour Cargo Integration & Operations - DO5 • Japanese Experiment Module • Electrical Power System Drawings • JAXA/NASA End-to-End Activation Test • STS-121 Transfer Team Support • Console Operator Training • Researched Methods to Clean Clothing in Space • Website Design Zero-G Clothes Washer JEM ACO Website 4

  5. Second Co-op TourElectronic Systems Test Lab – EV7 Multipath Fading Simulator • Multipath Fading Simulator • Firmware Radio Testing • High-Impedance Buffer Troubleshooting and Repair Buffer Box Repair 5

  6. Third Co-op TourIntelligent Systems Branch – ER2 SCOUT Dashboard Unit • RF Interference Troubleshooting • Created Spectrum Map of SCOUT Wireless Systems • Installed BPF and Ferrite Bead • SCOUT Dashboard Unit • Speedometer • Odometer • Battery Voltage • Temperature • Emergency Stop LEDs • Desert RATS Field Test Support RF Mapping of SCOUT Rover 6

  7. EV7 Projects – Fourier Analysis of FSK Square Wave Purpose • FM Transmitter Configuration • ESTL currently configures FM transmitters using a sinusoidal modulating signal • Many FSK transmitters have digital front ends that only support pulse modulation • Allows beta values (Δf / R) to be configured using square wave (‘1010’ or ‘1100’ pattern) modulating signal • Analysis of FSK Transmission Sequences • Preamble: Digital ‘1010’ training sequence • Results in additional power levels at center frequency and harmonics 7

  8. Method 1: Closed-Form Solution of Fourier Integral Pulse Train RF Pulse Train ReconstructedSignal FSK Square Wave Fourier Coefficients Sum of 2 RF Pulse TrainsOffset 180° 8

  9. Method 2: Numerical Evaluation of Fourier Integral Using Symbolic Mathematics Program FSK Square Wave x(t) Fourier Integral Normalized Fourier Series Coeffs. [dBc] 9

  10. Method 3: Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) FSK Square Wave x(t) Sample Signal s(t) FFT 10

  11. FSK Square Wave Spectrum Calculated via Closed-Form Solution Components occur at fc+ n*fm fm=R/2 for ‘1010’, fm= R/4 for ‘1100’ 11
