SDR Satcom Applications
Here you can find details of the snaps in the SDR Satcom App Store.
There are currently two categories of application:
- Community contributed apps
- Reference apps provided by Lime Micro
Gpredict is a real time satellite tracking and orbit prediction program for the Linux desktop. It uses the SGP4/SDP4 propagation algorithms together with NORAD two-line element sets (TLE).
The OpenSatelliteProject (OSP) Satellite Helper Application is currently an LRIT/HRIT demodulator / decoder program based on libSatHelper and xritdemod.
SDRangel is a Qt5 / OpenGL 3.0+ SDR and signal analyzer frontend. It has support for various modes, including DVB, and transmit operation.
A small number of reference applications are provided by Lime Microsystems.
The snapcraft build/packaging meta-data can be found on GitHub.
2.2.1 Lime Suite
Lime Suite driver and utilities only.
This minimal snap is useful for validating operation of LimeSDR hardware and performing firmware/gateware upgrades.
2.2.2 LimeSDR + GRC
GNU Radio, GNU Radio Companion (GRC) and gr-limesdr source/sink blocks.
This snap provides a base GNU Radio system, along with the GRC visual flowgraph editor, and blocks for LimeSDR hardware.
2.2.3 LimeSDR + Gqrx
Gqrx is an open source software-defined radio receiver (SDR) powered by GNU Radio and the Qt graphical toolkit.
Note that at the present time a device type of "other" should be selected and the device string "driver=lime;soapy=0" used.
2.2.4 LimeSDR + Pothos
The Pothos project is a complete data-flow framework for creating topologies of interconnected processing blocks.
This snap provides a Pothos environment with Pothos GUI, SDR blocks and LimeSDR hardware support via SoapySDR.
