Agenda / Details

The presentation will give an overview of a new generation of SDR platform, Hydra,developed by BBN technologies. The prototype units are available to the research community. This hardware platform fully embraces the cell phone paradigm for the handheld communications community while supporting the need for a multi-transceiver research/development platform. The device is designed to use the latest COTS hardware components and has a cost target well below the current generation of “specialized” hardware. Some research areas to explore using this platform include Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA), Simultaneous Send and Receive (STAR), direction finding (DF) and Geolocation.
