Digital methods of RFI mitigation in radio astronomy
September 17, 2022
We describe a new spectropolarimetric receiving complex for solar observations with the RATAN-600 radio telescope in the decimeter wavelength range. The use of a high-speed ADC and FPGA-based design of the DSP section made possible the direct detectorless reception and processing of radio frequency signals. The complex makes use of a method of radio frequency interference (RFI) mitigation based on the statistical properties of the received noise signal. We provide a brief description of the method, as well as details of the receiving system design, and give an example of the handling of data obtained from solar observations.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
