File Types - GOES Satellite Hunt
In last chapter we saw how to assemble our files , but we also need to know how to parse it. That part is somewhat tricky since even with the LRIT Protocol specification having some file formats, it heavily depends on how the manufacturer of the satellite and relay stations use it. Here I will describe the know file formats supported by OpenSatelliteProject for GOES-13/14/15/16 LRIT and HRIT downlinks. It is known that MSG Satellites (Meteosat) have similar file types, but had not been tested by me.
