Title: Ka-band and X-band observations of the solar corona aquired during the Cassini 2002 superior conjunction
Authors: Morabito, D. D.

Abstract: A superior solar conjunction occurs when the sun lies near the signal path of a source as observed from the Earth. Interplanetary spacecraft sent to the planets typically encounter one or more solar conjunctions during their mission lifetimes. During these periods, the signals sent to and from the spacecraft encounter degradation due to the intervening charged particles of the solar corona.
