What is it?

As we all know wireless communication is one of the most widely used forms of communication today. Additionally, radios and transceivers, serve as an integral part of transmitting and receiving data within a wireless network. With that said, our group aims to create an improved and cost-efficient RF automated picture transmission (APT) receiver which will ultimately gather information from National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA) satellites. The gathered information will then be readily available as satellite images for personal use or for the public for a lifetime. Specific satellite applications that may find use in our product range from cube-sats collecting scientific data, manipulating geographic images for land use, or even military satellite applications. With improved design techniques our receiver will efficiently produce weather satellite images at much lower production costs than traditional commercial receivers.
