cognitive radio node


Hornet is a collaborative spectral sensing and geolocation systems, that is comprised of a swarm of Cognitive Radio (CR) nodes and a spectrum monitoring and geolocation application.

The CR nodes include 1 to 2 wideband 2×2 MIMO Software Defined Radios (SDR) that can be controlled independently or dependently through a simple and intuitive web interface. GPS provides node location and synchronized data capture to support emitter geolocation via Time Difference of Arrival (TDOA) and Frequency Difference of Arrival (FDOA), as well as deeper signal processing and analysis. Multiple spatial channels also support geolocation via Direction Finding (DF) Line of Bearing (LOB) algorithms. The built-in cognitive engine enables sophisticated edge processing and autonomous learning and reconfiguration enabling real-time adaptation to dynamic spectral environments and a reduction in data backhaul throughput requirements. Provides support for various remote control and data backhaul options including Ethernet, cellular, Iridium, and IoT/Lora.
