My place to think
Comments Off on SMMSP

The Sean Madden Memorial Space Program started off as a running joke by Derek Erdmann  while my successor as the Head of Mentoring at the Society of Software Engineers.  I ran with it.


What am I doing with it?  Teaching myself orbital mechanics mostly.  Endgame?  To live-track Earth satellites in real-time with mobile, embedded, and desktop applications along with satellite dish autoalignment.



  • Learn Orbital Mechanics
  • Track Satellites in Real-Time
  • Experiment and learn signals processing with the RTL-SDR project
  • Determine how to auto-align a satellite dish based on the satellite tracking algorithms above.
  • Use the dish and the signals processing bits to receive weather signals from satelllites.
