Rapid Prototyping Digital SCA-Based SDR Waveforms with OSSIE: A Hands-On Tutorial

Presented by Carl B. Dietrich, Virginia Tech, USA; Frank Kragh, Naval Postgraduate School, USA; and Donna Miller, Naval Postgraduate School, USA


In this hands-on tutorial, participants will become familiar with easy-to-use, open-source tools for rapid prototyping and interactive control of SCA-based SDR waveform applications. After developing example applications, participants will use the tools to develop a digital communications waveform. The session begins with a brief overview of software defined radio including basic concepts, education, research topics, and the Software Communications Architecture (SCA). OSSIE, Virginia Tech's open source implementation based on the SCA, is introduced through hands-on activities developed by the Naval Postgraduate School and Virginia Tech. Lab materials as well as the OSSIE core framework and associated rapid development and application software are provided to participants and are also available for free download.
