Research Title: Development of a Compact Dual-band radiometer to retrieve Soil Moisture and Salinity Measurements with an UAS

Research Synopsis: I'm in charge of the design of the rf system of the radiometer. This system consist of the design of the dual band antenna (L/Ka band frequency), the power divider to feed the antenna array, and the RF filter for both bands. The antenna consist of a patch antenna for the lower frequency and an SIW Slot array integrated to the patch to transmit the KA band. This frequency where chosen in order to measure the Soil moisture and salinity with the low band, and make correction to the salinity measurements with the higher band.
