  • Initial GPS scintillation results from CASES receiver at South Pole, Antarctica

    Connected Autonomous Space Environment Sensor (CASES) Global Positioning System (GPS) software-defined receivers developed for ionospheric scintillation studies have been deployed on Autonomous Adaptive Low-Power Instrument Platforms (AAL-PIP) at South Pole, Antarctica. In this paper, we describe the AAL-PIP experimental setup focusing on CASES. We explain in detail the method developed for analyzing CASES data, and report initial AAL- PIP CASES results. Furthermore, we compare the CASES measurements with those from a modified Novatel GSV4004 GPS Ionospheric Scintillations and TEC Monitor (GISTM) receiver at the South Pole. CASES receivers have been successfully deployed and reliably operated in equatorial and midlatitude regions. Four of these GPS receivers, for the first time, are deployed in high-latitude regions as a part of the National Science Foundation (NSF) funded project of deploying space science instrument platforms, AAL-PIPs, in Antarctica since December 2010–2011. We present initial scintillation results recorded by a CASES receiver at South Pole during the storm on 24 January 2012 along with AAL-PIP magnetometer observations. We have deduced that the CASES receiver scintillation observations agree with those from the Novatel GPS scintillation receiver. Since this is the first time a CASES receiver has been deployed to operate in a high latitude, low temperature, and low humidity environment, we consider this comparison a demonstration of its reliable operation as a science-grade scintillation receiver in such conditions. We plan to study high latitude ionospheric irregularities by using observations from CASES and other ancillary instruments from Antarctica coupled with physical parameters derived from models.

  • The capabilities of the calculated approach for the astroclimatic assessment in radioastronomy

    Earth atmosphere causes considerable impediments for radioastronomical observations at millimeter and sub-millimeter waves bands due to atmosphere attenuation and instability its transfer function. Consequently, even a slight improvement of the transfer function and its stability can lead to a tangible radioastronomical observations efficiency increase, especially in the submillimeter wave range. In view of this and taking uniqueness and high cost of the radiotelescopes that are installed in various regions of the world, location astroclimatic suitability assessment is required. These assessment are usually experimental and consist of gathering the statistical information concerning the extent of atmospheric attenuation, it's seasonal and daily unsteadiness to reveal the most favorable time and place for the observation to be performed.

  • Statistical characterization of the meteor trail distribution at the South Pole as seen by a VHF interferometric meteor radar

    A VHF meteor radar system was installed at the geographical South Pole in 2001. The purpose of this system is to measure the horizontal wind field in the mesosphere–lower thermosphere (MLT) region and to understand the large- scale dynamics of the Antarctic polar region. The radar operated for a few months in 2001 and with minor interruptions since that time. In this paper we will describe the meteor radar system, the data detection and collection process, and the postprocessing software that was developed to extract information from the meteor echoes collected with the interferometer that is part of the radar system. Finally, the main features of the meteor distribution will be presented and discussed. Our results show that the meteor activity peaks during the Antarctic summer. Furthermore, it occurs mostly in a small region around the ecliptic plane roughly ∼20° wide in terms of elevation angle spread.

  • A low energy muon trigger for Icecube

    A “Track Engine” (TE) concept has been developed for use with IceCube to maximize track-finding efficiency in the presence of noise. IceCube is a km- scale neutrino detector under construction at South Pole, now consisting of 40 strings of 60 Digital Optical modules (DOM) sensitive to Cherenkov light. Each DOM includes a large PMT that generates noise pulses at ∼500 Hz. The detection by a DOM of a pulse, noise or signal, generates a “Hit”. The full-scale IceCube will consist of 86 strings, and is expected to generate an average of approximately 13 random Hits during any 5μs window, the characteristic traversal time within the array of a relativistic muon. Data is currently acquired with a simple multiplicity trigger (SMT) requiring at least 16 DOM Hits, with the additional requirement that these Hits form local coincidence pairs (8 Hit pairs). However, this trigger is inefficient, especially for low energy muons that generate a minimum of light, but are of special interest for many experimental studies such as detecting signals from WIMP annihilation in the earth or sun. To increase efficiency for dim tracks, the TE examines all Hits, paired or not, and exploits topological features characteristic of straight line trajectories within the array to identify muons even in the presence of substantial noise. A single PC and FPGA combination is expected to handle the full IceCube Hit rate of 2.5 MHz with more than a factor two margin. The received Hits are time sorted in a PC and fed to a Xilinx ML507 FPGA board implementing the track engine algorithm. The FPGA solution was chosen, since it could be shown that the present algorithm cannot be implemented in software on one PC alone. The design reaches its high performance by an extensive pipelining of the calculations and operations, well designed and optimized network nodules in software and an extensive use of the fast, single-cycle delay Block RAM available in the FPGA.

  • Characterization of terminal impedance and radiation properties of a horizontal VLF antenna over Antarctic ice

    Measurements of the input impedance of two very low frequency (VLF) transmitters in Antarctica are used to validate existing dielectric models for the ice substrate at these frequencies. Using a finite difference time domain approach, Maxwell's equations are solved in the presence of dispersive media, representing the layers of ice which form the Antarctic ice sheet as a single- pole Debye material. This model provides simulated input impedance values in good agreement with measured data for both the South Pole beacon and the former Siple Station VLF transmitters. Using the validated simulation tool, the radiation characteristics of the South Pole beacon VLF transmitter are characterized. Results for the radiation resistance, efficiency, and far-field pattern are provided for the current South Pole transmitter. The power pattern for a two-element array is also determined.

  • Designing photovoltaic plants for extreme ambient conditions

    The paper describes the design process of a photovoltaic (PV) plant to be installed in extreme ambient conditions. In particular, a PV plant has been conceived for the very challenging conditions of the French-Italian Antarctic Base, located in the South Pole. Concordia Base has been built with the collaboration of Italian consortium PRNA, French Polar Institute IPEV and European Space Agency ESA. It is one of the three bases not located on the coast and is open all the year. The electrical load of the base, presently supplied by three diesel generators, has been previously characterized measuring the relevant quantities during a period of one year. During the same year an experimental campaign has been conducted to collect the necessary solar radiation data of the site. A model of the PV panels has been set up and validated to be used for the simulation of the plant behaviour. Finally, the possible contribution of the solar energy to the Concordia Antarctic Base supply has been calculated.

  • Antarctic Miniature Lidar

    Summary form only given. Reports on a compact, low-power lidar that has been assembled, tested, and deployed at the Atmospheric Research Observatory (ARO) at the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station since February 1996. The Antarctic Miniature Lidar uses commercially available, single-element semiconductor lasers (SDL-5430), a 20-cm Meade Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope, and single- photon counting (EG&G SPCM AQ-122). The authors present lidar measurements made during two polar nights, April 1996 through September 1996 and April 1997 through September 1997. The Antarctic Miniature Lidar has been designed to operate continuously during the polar night to detect the occurrence of polar stratospheric clouds which occur at altitudes of 12-27 km.
