Project: Satellite Imagery

  • Alex Wulff


In this chapter, we’ll use a software-defined radio to receive image data from NOAA weather satellites flying overhead and then render this data into a real image. Your newfound knowledge of radio theory will be plenty sufficient for you to understand what’s happening behind the scenes. You’ll need a laptop for this chapter, or a desktop very close to a window, as actually capturing data from the satellites must be done outside. Figure 4-1 shows what the final image from a satellite will look like.
