Abstract: The SERENDIP IV SETI program is a 5 year radio sky survey conducted by the University of California at Berkeley. The observations are conducted remotely at National Astronomy and Ionospheric Center in Arecibo, Puerto Rico. Here we discuss the data acquisition and analysis pipeline from the detection of narrow band signals to the construction of an ETI candidate database. Particular emphasis placed on the data processing algorithms employed to reject radio interference and to search for patterns the lead us to classify a set of signals as an ETI candidate.
