 Summary:
 Due to evolution of the Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), their features and capabilities are constantly increasing to the point that being possible to use their radio signals by other means than the main, original implementation. The innovative methodologies use direct, reflected, or refracted GNSS radio signals to analyse the atmospheric properties or to observe the Earth’s surface behaviour. This paper tests the feasibility of the active GPS refracted signals and their capability to identify the refractivity profile pressure, temperature and water vapour during their pass through the atmospheric layers. The objective is to put together theory, methodology, and application of the GPS radio occultation (GPS-RO) concept, considering the advantages and disadvantages of existing missions with possibility to develop and implement similar techniques in future cubesat missions
