How Software Defined Radios solve challenges of Spectrum Monitoring and real time Direction Finding

As the variety and complexity of communication systems in the modern RF battlefield increase, the need to quickly design, deploy and field upgrade spectrum monitoring and direction finding solutions becomes paramount. Software Defined Radios (SDR) with user programmable FPGAs are uniquely positioned to be the platform that will keep pace with the rapidly changing ecosystem of algorithms and technologies.

To effectively carry out Signal Intelligence (SIGINT), Electronic Warfre (EW) and multi-mission operations, SDR platforms for spectrum monitoring and real time direction finding need to cover wide frequency ranges, process high bandwidth data in real-time, provide synchronization scalable across multiple channels, and support flexible development tools.

Join National Instruments (NI) for an in-depth look at the next generation of flexible and powerful COTS SDRs that enable spectrum monitoring, direction finding, and radio functionality. The Webinar will include discussions of RF system requirements, an overview of multiple software tool flows available, and a demonstration of an open source reference direction finding application integrated with a map API.
