Global Navigation Satellite Systems - Reflectometry (GNSS-R) has shown his potential for remote sensing. Since new wider band signals are being broadcasted, and new systems are becoming available, a performance comparison in fair conditions between signals and system is required. For this purpose, the Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya has been developing the MIR instrument, an airborne GNSS reflectometer that mimics Paris-IOD, and that also aims to better understand some GNSS-R techniques, the RFI analysis and mitigation, and the use of beamforming techniques to improve the GNSS-R capabilities. This work presents the advances in the instrument, the end-to-end tests, and the field campaign being planned in Australia for Spring, 2018.
