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 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
  • The Ohio Space Grant Consortium (OSGC)
