Project Description

The fish tracker project is intended to be a payload used in an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). It uses software defined radio (SDR) to reduce the amount of hardware required and to increase its adaptability to other application It is designed to listen for transmitted signals and record the signal strength and the GPS location when a signal is received. In this case, it is specifically looked for emitted frequencies in the 166 MHz band, but it can be adapted using software to seek different frequency ranges.
