Paper Abstract

The paper presents a project of localization subsystem of small space capsule, after its landing on the Earth. The system consists of two part: space transmitter in the capsule, that uses GPS receiver to determine capsule position and transmits it using 433 MHz band, and the ground receiver that receives transmitted signal and display position of the capsule. A completely practical qualification model of the system transmitter that fulfils all space requirements has been designed and realized.
