SatCon is a software utility for converting raw binary data, as logged by SatView, into readable ASCII text suitable for import by third party applications such as spreadsheets or databases. Data can be extracted in calibrated physical units or raw binary counts. SatCon can be operated interactively through a user friendly graphical interface, or in batch mode as a background process.
For minimum system requirements, installation instructions, and new features, please refer to the release notes in the SatCon User Manual.

New features for version 1.4: - An Instrument Package File can now be either dropped onto the Instrument Files List or be selected from the File List Properties Dialog to provide the required Instrument files. - The Conversion Parameter "File Buffer" now is not used to possibly abort the conversion of a log file. A log file now is always completely read to ensure that all frames are converted. New features for version 1.3: - TDF files containing sensors with ID and FIT-TYPE fields set to NONE can now be used to correctly convert their raw telemetry files. New features for version 1.2A: - Batch processing of multiple conversion files from the main application window. - A few additional command line switches have been added for overriding SatCon application properties. This gives the user more control during a command line conversion. - An improved user interface, including an improved conversion window dialog and faster sorting file lists.
