gr-satellites project update

gr-satellites is a GNU Radio OOT module that contains a collection of telemetry decoders for Amateur satellites. At FOSDEM20 we presented an on-going large refactor to improve modularity and usabilty. The new version was finally released in June and includes a command line tool to run the decoders, GNU Radio blocks of both high and low level to allow customized designs, and comprehensive user documentation. Moreover, gr-satellites now has cross-platform support through Conda, has been included in Debian and has an Ubuntu PPA.

In this talk we will look at the main features of the new gr-satellites releases and the important things that have happened this year surrounding the development of gr-satellites.
