RadioHound is a low-cost, pervasive, persistent, sub-6 GHz spectrum sensor being developed at the University of Notre Dame that leverages off-the-shelf radiofrequency components. The goal is to create a lightweight "disposable" sensor (sub $10) that, along with hundreds or thousands of other such sensors, creates a spectral map of radio-frequency energy. Such a sensor platform can be mounted on a UAV and used in distributed sensing applications for electromagnetic awareness.
