Many thanks to SWLing Post contributor, Andrew, who writes:
Not kidding, a friend told me that NSA released a bunch of software to open source, the main list being here:
“A software-defined radio (SDR) framework designed to support the development, deployment, and management of real-time software radio applications.”
Now, being curious I opened the github link:
[It] contains quite a number of subprojects, modules and other stuff, then I checked the main “RedHawk” project:
Here’s the documentation:
It seems really interesting; apparently it allows to define a wealth of processing stages (e.g. filters, converters…) and connect them to process signals coming from an SDR; I think it may be a very interesting and useful tool to fiddle/experiment with SDR receivers, if I’m not wrong it may allow to push an SDR to the limits, improving its performance, and may also be useful to write SDR software!
Fascinating! Thank you for the tip, Andrew!
Post Readers: It appears this project has been in the public domain for a little while. Please comment if you’ve tried implementing RedHawk in your SDR system!
