Why no SDRD?

So much of the tech I use at work and home has evolved into a Software Defined product where the electronics are more generic and there is a lot of open source development for features and function driving the overall product lines. I'm not aware of an SD radar detector, but it seems it would lend itself to this product quite well. YaV1 is about as close as I've seen, but even that is more of an API style product. Perhaps this is intentional to prevent IP overtake? Any ideas on this?

I believe the new Radenso that was hinted at might use this technology.

The more and more I hear about it, I believe it will just be another detector with sequential scanning... a bit faster though... maybe chunk scanning... but you never can say never.

It makes no sense to me that this hasn't been developed before now. Unless the market development is being artificially restrained, I can't think of a reason. The hardware we use hasn't changed much in the last 10 years. We use and they sell the same, basic device hardware for several years to a decade or more.

So the problem here is processing power...

Simply put most SOC’s don’t have the capability...

It’s been tried on wireless (white space broadband) and even wireline with SOC’s (puma 6).

Maybe that’s the whole point of the AI behind Radenso’s new product... to better tell anomalies vs legit hits based off of full or partial spectrum analysis. Right now we just have to sit back and wait.

Unless you want to get in on this very difficult market. What may seem logical or necessary often isn’t in a consumer and capitalist society. Their question is does it meet a demand and how can you do something to the cheapest but decently effective manner possible. That’s why we have the products we have on the market.

I'm not suggesting that the commercial companies will have any interest. I'm surprised someone hasn't produced hardware with an open source lattice to build functionality into. I'll bet the development curve would turn the industry on its head. It's worked in nearly every other industry where its been tried.
