The KerberosSDR is a Coherent RTL-SDR with 4x channels which makes it perfect for direction finding, passive radar or beam forming.
The KerberosSDR contains:
- 4x RTL-SDR R820T2 Receivers
- Frequency Range: 24 MHz – 1.7 GHz
- ADC Sample Rate: 2.4 MSPS
- Bit Depth: 8 Bits
- A wideband noise source that can be switched in software
- USB Hub so only one USB connection is required
- A calibration board for synchronizing samples with the noise source
- A shielded metal enclosure
- Internal cables for connecting the two boards and noise source
You’ll need to provide your own antennas for your application (e.g. four magnetic whips for direction finding, two directional antennas for passive radar), a 5V USB power supply, a microUSB USB cable, and a Linux computing device like a PC/laptop or single board computer like a Raspberry Pi 3/4 or Tinkerboard. (Must run Linux natively – VMs have too much USB lag for coherency).
Please note, while the creators are aiming to make KerberosSDR as easy to use as possible, at least a basic to moderate level of computer and radio technical knowledge is required, or you must be willing to learn. This is an experimental product and some willingness to experiment and explore solutions is required. The demo software that we provide is capable of doing direction finding and 2-RX passive radar. Your own custom code or applications will be required for custom applications.
