From the Cloud-SDR website:
The Cloud-SDR Concept
You need a way to remotely access your existing SDR receiver? To stream your IQ samples to another remote computer over the network?
Cloud-SDR is a commercial software solution to enable real time RF data sharing or processing through the cloud.
Cloud-SDR can collect real-time IQ complex samples from an SDR hardware device connected on one machine, stream the samples to a second machine for demodulation or analysis, then send the resulting stream to third machine for storage.
Because network bandwidth is limited compared to SDR receiving bandwidth, the core concept of Cloud-SDR is to move the processing along the cloud to where it is required or possible : the DSP chain is divided in sub-tasks that are spread between computers interconnected through Internet.
Very cool, Sylvain!
I like the fact your system supports popular affordable SDRs like the SDRplay RSP & AirSpy and that you can stream your IQ samples.
