Software Defined Radios

Software defined radios (SDRs) provide the capability to continuously record and playback RF signals (1 MHz - 6 GHz) with up to 25 MHz of instantaneous bandwidth. The radios can be synchronized via GPS to allow for simultaneous recording at sites separated by several kilometers. MTRI has successfully implemented a three-node system that recorded 25 MHz of bandwidth for up 90 seconds on each node. The SDRs can also be used for spread-spectrum and cognitive radio applications.
