As part of the internal OHB Hellas activities, a weather satellite signal reception system was setup at the premises of the company.
It utilizes a VHF antenna and it is connected to the open-source SatNOGS network developed by Libre Space Foundation, contributing to the collaborative effort of the community with its data measurements.
The main signals targeted for acquisition are those of the NOAA weather satellites. Below you can see some samples of images received. Hunting satellites is now a part of OHB Hellas’ activities!
For example, you can see below an image from the satellite NOAA-15 taken on 2023-08-28 07:02:23 (UTC). The image was transferred directly from the satellite to our antenna on the rooftop of the office.
