RadioHound Project Announces First Partner Release

Tiffanie Sammons • DATE: June 15, 2018

The RadioHound project (https://wireless.nd.edu/research/radiohound-distributed-spectrum-sensing) is advancing and building the enabling technologies to create large-scale geographic maps of activity in the radio frequency (RF) spectrum. Combinations of these technologies will enable commercial and government entities to advance situational awareness, efficient spectrum utilization, and enforcement of regulations and spectrum sharing etiquettes to significantly advance numerous applications of the RF spectrum such as communications, sensing and radar, positioning, and electronic warfare.

Following three years of university, industry, and government effort, the RadioHound team announces the availability of a “partner release.” The purpose of the release is to allow select partners to evaluate the platform, to provide feedback to the university researchers, and to plan the next round of collaborative research and development.

Partner releases can include some number of low-cost RF sensors and a cloud software image for managing a set of sensors and collecting and visualizing their data. All software, a data and control interface specification, and other design documents are also releasable. Each release is made via a non-disclosure and materials transfer agreement established with the University, allowing for rapid exchange without financial or intellectual property negotiations at this stage.

Interested parties are encouraged to contact to discuss obtaining the partner release.

RadioHound is a Wireless Institute multi-PI project, with the hardware components developed by Jonathan Chisum and Bertrand Hochwald (Lead PI), and the software components by J. Nicholas Laneman, Aaron Striegel, and D. Scott Null.

Graduate students involved include Nik Kleber, Abbas Termos, Gonzalo Martinez, John Merritt, and David Connelly,
