Abstract
The FSSCat mission is a two nano-satellite Earth Observation mission based on 6-unit CubeSats. This paper is focused on the description of one of the remote sensing payloads: the Flexible Microwave Payload 2 (FMPL-2), on board the 3 Cat-5/A. The payload design is based on a Software Defined Radio, aiming to demonstrate the capabilities of nano-satellites to provide valuable scientific data. Two different instruments are integrated into a single payload: a multi-constellation (GPS and Galileo) Gl...
