Abstract

In support of the Personal Space Weather Station Network, a team at the University of Alabama are working on two parallel software efforts. First, an embedded system is being developed for the small board computer that will be a part of the TangerineSDR. This package includes a web interface for user friendliness and a main controller written in C to handle high speed data. Second, a Central Control System will be developed that users can log into and upload data they collect. This central system will be used for aggregating and analyzing data, as well as to coordinate data collection. The embedded system and central control will work together so that science data collection is easy for the user. As an added bonus, the TangerineSDR will give each user tools for observing propagation at their own location, as an aid to their ham radio activities.
