Software-Defined Radio

A VOR receiver based on Software-Defined Radio is presented. Experiments showed that the system indicated the radials of the VOR station of São José dos Campos with an average error rate of less than 1% and a standard deviation of less than 2.14% in relation to those calculated cartographically. The results suggest that low volume and weight SDR-based VOR receivers can be developed with processing on microcontrollers or FPGAs to equip drones that need to operate in aerodrome environments.
