Automatic Picture Transmission, a way of transmitting analogue images, as used by NOAA and Meteosat for example. Higher quality digital images are transmitted on a different frequency, see HRPT and PDUS respectively.
Automatic Picture Transmission (TIROS, ATS, ESSA, NOAA-n).
The simple analog mode of NOAA image transmission is known as utomatic icture ransmission, or APT. APT images have a ground resolution of around 4km. NOAA satellites also transmit a higher resolution digital mode known as igh esolution icture ransmission ( HRPT), where ground features as small as 1km may be observed. By a slightly confusing coincidence, the building where our satellite receiver is housed is known as the utomated atrol elescope , more usually, "The APT".

A huge white furred creature with six limbs, four of which are short and heavy to carry it through snow and ice; a denizen of the Barsoomian north pole. The remaining two limbs grow forward from the shoulder on either side of the powerful long neck and terminate in white, hairless hands which it uses to capture and hold its prey. Its head and mouth are like that of the hippopotamus with two large, down-curving horns extending forward from the bottom jaw. Two huge eyes, each composed of hundreds of ocelli, are oval patches running downward from the center of the cranium to below the horns on either side of the head. Each ocelli is equipped with its own lid and the apt can, at will, close as many of the facets as desired. Curiously the creature goes without sleep for periods of up to a month, then sleeps for a whole day before beginning anew the hunt for food in the harsh north. The animal is domesticated by the Yellow men. Apt fur is generally worn by northern warriors. (See Orluk below)
