The newest addition to my Raspberry Pi Projects, ADS-B Flight Tracking.
With open-source software, overhead and or nearby aircraft can be tracked through the ADS-B signals the planes transmit. Currently the flight data is sent to 6 different flight Tracking websites. (Contributor ID provided when possible.)
My newest project during the COVID Quarantine has been focused on NOAA Satellite images. I recently came across a Reddit article that talked about how an RTL-SDR dongle can download weather images from passing NOAA Satellites. I was very interested and had to try it. I found several articles from different people explaining their setup with Raspberry Pi units and how they automated the process.
Ending results: My Raspberry Pi with an RTL-SDR dongle and a small (currently outdoor) antenna, captures and decodes the broadcasts from the passing Weather Satellites.
It’s still a work in progress, this is a rough working setup at the moment.
