Description :

TitanSDR is an effective tool for surveillance and monitoring of the radio spectrum and can be usefully employed in the following areas: Homeland security and foreign intelligence, SIGINT and COMINT, military communications, environmental protection from electromagnetic pollution, detection of interfering or illegal electromagnetic emissions. TitanSDR is a Software Defined Radio multichannel receiver for parallel wideband (WB) acquisitions over the HF band, allowing simultaneous monitoring of as many as 40 narrowband (NB) channels. It can be operated by a commercial personal computer through standard USB 2.0 interfacing. Spectrum and waterfall plots are provided for WB and NB channels, of both RF and demodulated audio. WB channels can be recorded on PC hard disk for later replay. NB channels can be recorded in parallel into audio wav files. Demodulation is supported for main radio formats. Interface to external software decoders can be through VAC (Virtual Audio Cable) or LAN Ethernet. Recording of both WB and NB channels can be scheduled, even to happen just on specific days of the week.

On TitanSDR innovative pre-processing based on filters banks was implemented on FPGA, instead of conventional DDC (Digital Down Conversion), allowing for flexible partitioning of the acquisition bandwidth into WB channels and permitting tens of NB channels with reduced impact on CPU, even during replay of WB channels.

Preselector :

Front-End controls allow to set the receiver input (HF or IF) and the attenuation to HF input. The preselection filters are as follow:

Filter Segment Filter Segment
n° 1 Low Pass 1.54 MHz n° 9 Band Pass 5.53~7.96
n° 2 Band Pass 1.44~2.07 n° 10 Band Pass 6.46~9.31
n° 3 Band Pass 1.88~2.70 n° 11 Band Pass 7.81~11.24
n° 4 Band Pass 2.40~3.46 n° 12 Band Pass 9.74~14.03
n° 5 Band Pass 2.96~4.26 n° 13 Band Pass 12.53~18.05
n° 6 Band Pass 3.56~5.12 n° 14 Band Pass 16.55~23.17
n° 7 Band Pass 4.22~6.08 n° 15 Band Pass 21.67~28.17
n° 8 Band Pass 4.88~7.03 n° 16 Band Pass 26.67~32.00

As observed, the bandwidth is much less than one octave, for best second order intercept (IP2). The operator can also switch-off the preselector by directly connecting the antenna input to the next stages, in this mode TitanSDR is used as a broadband spectrum analyzer from 9 KHz to 40 MHz with a resolution (RBW) of only 305 Hz.
