Dr. Kameda's research team visits Brazil to gather data/亀田敏弘准教授の研究チームがブラジルで研究活動を開始


Associate Professor Toshihiro Kameda of the Faculty of Engineering, Information and Systems and three of his students organized a trip to Brazil ( from Feb. 20 to Feb. 25, 2017 ) to conduct research work on a project in collaboration with the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) of Japan. The purpose is for R & D of an ultra-low-cost satellite platform. The team needs to gather data on the radio waves emitted from the ITF-2 ultra-small satellite released to the Japanese Experiment Module (JEM, or "Kibo") of the International Space Station - which are received in Brazil, the opposite side of Japan.

For this project, Director Laerte Sodré Júnior of the University of Sao Paulo's Institute of Astronomy, Geophysics and Atmospheric Sciences assisted the research team by setting up an antenna on their Sao Paulo campus.
