NOAA Ground Station

NOAA Ground Station 

The NOAA Ground Station is an educational receiver station for NOAA APT service. 
Thanks the Quadrifilar Helix Antenna (without pointing mechanism) and a custom PC is possible to receive Meteorological Images directly from the satellites. The dedicated software manages the raw signal and transforms it in images. 
Different views are available: Gray scale; False Color; Temperature; 3D; Precipitations. 
The system is easy to install, needs only a pedestal for Antenna (fixed to wall) and a dedicated area for the PC-Desktop. Internet connection is recommended for upload the last satellite data.
