NYC Events: DARPA SDR Hackfest Info Sessions

There’s a few upcoming events related to DARPA SDR Hackfest – Check ’em out if you’re in the NYC area!

Tonight at 7PM at Fat Cat Fab Lab – Software Defined Radio: guest speaker Dr. Tom Rondeau!

Fat Cat Fab Lab is honored to have one of the former lead developers of the GNU Radio project in to talk to us about the exciting field of Software Defined Radio and the upcoming DARPA Bay Area Hackfest!

Dr. Tom Rondeau writes:

The DARPA Bay Area Hackfest, in partnership with NASA Ames, is all about exploring the electromagnetic spectrum in new and interesting ways that are likely to become consequential in both civilian and national security contexts. Toward that end, my team is putting a software radio onto a remotely piloted aircraft, a UAV, and we will make this model system available at the Hackfest to innovators in the community who we hope will develop exciting new opportunities to build better and more complex cyber-physical systems.
The Hackfest, which is open to anyone, comprises three parts: a speaker series, a hacker space, and the Hackfest Missions. The speaker series and hacker space run throughout the week as open sessions for anyone to come to and interact with experts and enthusiasts in software radio and UAVs. In the Missions portion of he Hackfest, we are asking participating teams to solve specific technology goals based around the software radio-enabled UAV. Those wishing to participate in the Missions portion, however, must apply to do so. In this talk, I will describe the Hackfest in detail and specify how to participate in the Missions.
By opening new ways for programming wireless systems, whether they are UAVs or internet-connected household appliances, software radio can provide the foundation for many future capabilities. This Hackfest provides an opportunity to make a big step in that exciting direction.

P.S. from FCFL: Feel free to come at 6PM for a demo of the ~$20 RTL-SDR. Or if you need help getting the “Hello World!” working using you own RTL-SDR. (AKA demodulating some FM Radio broadcasts.)

RSVP here.


Tomorrow, April 26 from 4-6 at Maker Event Space – DARPA SDR Hackfest Info Session

The NYU Tandon MakerSpace will be hosting an info session on the upcoming DARPA SDR Bay Area Hackfest. Dr. Tom Rondeau, Program Manager in the Microsystems Technology Office, will be introducing the topic and specifying how to participate in the Hackfest Missions. See the description below for more information:
