Sounds from Space

 

Sounds from Scientific, Meteorological and Commercial Satellites 2017-today

This part of my audio collection is dedicated to commercial and scientific satellites. I started this separate section when Greg Roberts, ZS1BI in Cape Town, started to convert some of his old recordings from a tape recorder with elastic belt drives to electronic format. Greg is a retired professional astronomer and since 1957 has been actively involved in the tracking of artificial satellites, both by optical and radio means. Click on his picture to the right to get more information about him and his activities.

INS-1C (ISRO NanoSatellite 1C) is an Indian Nanosatellite developed by ISRO. It carries a Miniature Multi Spectral Imager Technology Demonstrator (MMX-TD). Data sent by this camera is expected to be useful for topographical mapping, vegetation monitoring, aerosol scattering and cloud studies. It was launched on January 12th 2018 on PSLV C40 from India. The expected lifetime is 6 months. Data downlink is in S-Band with 1Mbps. Command and telemetry exchange is handled in VHF and UHF bands.
