Single Board Computer

What is it?

A single board computer is a small, inexpensive, but fully functional computer.

What does it do in the LSTN kit?

The computer has SatNOGS software installed that allows us to track and record information from passing satellites. It is connected directly to the software-defined radio (SDR) to receive transmissions from the satellites. It is connected to the internet and power through an Ethernet cable. Since it is connected to the internet, we can interact with it through the SatNOGS website after initial configuration.
