Just Launched from Crowd Supply: KrakenSDR, a Phase-Coherent SDR for Passive Radar and RF Transmitter Localization

October 21, 2021Crowd Supply, the leading product development platform connecting hardware creators with early adopters and enthusiastic backers, announces the launch of KrakenSDR, a phase-coherent software-defined radio (SDR) featuring five channels and automatic calibration hardware. KrakenSDR offers a 4.5V bias tee on each port, enabling simple interfaces with external devices. With built-in coherence synchronization, KrakenSDR supports a range of applications including beamforming, passive radar, and radio direction finding.

KrakenSDR, developed by KrakenRF and launched with support from Crowd Supply, features a low-noise design and rugged, CNC-milled enclosure. Building off the previous KerberosSDR, KrakenSDR adds autocalibration and tracking of intermittent signals to the foundation of KerberosSDR software. Designed to run on a Raspberry Pi 4, KrakenSDR’s core DSP software is open source, while its direction-finding Android software is free for non-commercial use. KrakenSDR is suitable for use by both amateurs and professionals, helping astronomers to increase image resolution and enabling RF engineers to locate the sources of illegal broadcasts.
