The SDRNode sensors embed GPU processors and SDR receivers to offer real time preprocessing close to the antenna for different applications like passive radar, radio infrastructure monitoring, coverage maps, spectrum change detection, clear frequency monitoring etc.
Resource consuming tasks like digital down-convertion or convolutions are directly handled by the NVIDIA Jetson GPU Cores.
In standalone mode, SDRNode sensors run local configuration to capture, process and store RF data. Requiring less than 10 Watts of power-supply, it can be easily embedded in vehicles or drones for field data acquisition.
In connected mode, sensors stream to the local network multiple sub-bands to multiple users or applications simultaneously, produce reports or snapshots for remote analysis or storage, remote RF reception on low-throughput networks.
Managed mode sensors installed in remote facilities can be controlled through standard Internet connections (DSL, 4G, …) without any configuration: RF processing instructions are filed to coordination servers and sensors periodically connect to check pending tasks using web-standards (HTTP connections). Reports and data are sent back with standard protocols, going through proxies or firewalls. Our management software suite is designed to schedule the SDRNode swarm tasks and ease the raw data or reports collection
