Phase I:  Making a Software Defined Radio 

While unknown to most software defined radios or SDR's have been around for a few years.  Up until now most recently they were reserved for special academic interests, research, and the US military.  This technology allows our new radio to be software upgradable.  Much like your smart phone is able to download apps our radio can be upgraded by simply downloading and installing software.  This allows our new design to be utilized for a variety of needs and repurposed as needed to meet new challenges.  Bringing radio technology into the software revolution is our mission.  This effectively future proofs these radios against spectrum reallocation while providing great versatility to the customer.   Thats right this is the first radio that allows you to program it to the spectrum available to you at the time of use.  The design offers the ability to move between spectrum as needed (and when authorized) while allowing detailed control over parameters such as channel frequency, bandwidth, modulation scheme, and trunking options.

 

 

Phase II: Expand Capability and Interconnect the Repeaters

The smart SDR repeater will provide backwards compatibility with all older radio generations however, it will also provide new means of tuning and modulation schema that can be used with new generation radios.  This will offer advancements in power consumption, range, and increased spectrum density.  The above will connect all new generation Repeaters to each other over the internet.  This will allow someone in one coverage area to talk to another person in a different coverage area without the need to setup additional service contracts or purchase additional equipment.  Operators participating in the nation wide coverage and revenue sharing option will receive additional traffic from communications outside their coverage area as well as shared revenue from the nation wide plan as purchased by the customer.  Targeted customers include industries that require connectivity in rural areas not traditionally serviced by cell phones.  This includes but is not limited companies dealing with pipelines, power lines, trains, mines, surveying, and even drone communications.

 

 

Phase III: Serve the Consumer through Cell Phone Compatibility

In Phase III a low cost radio device similar to that of a MiFi device as pictured will be provided.  This device will allow cell phones to pair with it for low data applications.  Since we will be utilizing the cell phone to provide all of the user interface, microphone, and speakers the device will designed towards a low cost, easy to use solution, that is battery operated and easily carried on person.

We believe cell phones can work together with traditional radio bands to provide an outstanding customer service experience by augmenting each others weaknesses.  Cell phone markets benefit from large purchasing power and rapid technology development while traditional radio solutions are still best suited for many applications.  If a user needs to carry both shouldn't they both play well together?
