XiOne SDR Indiegogo

XiOne - the portable software defined radio:
"Our XiOne Software Defined Radio has been designed around mobility, not only including the hardware but also a bundle of applications covering smart phones, tablets as well as Windows, Mac OS and Linux systems. Just start-up XiOne and step into a new world of radio frequency applications without the need for special knowledge and therefore steep learning curves. 
To continuously enhance XiOne’s capabilities we like to encourage the maker community to develop their own applications. A well documented application interface and a Software Development Kit, including code examples, make it easy to start the integration of new applications. There is no need to install special drivers because all interfaces are based on standard network protocols, so it is simple to operate the device within all environments. Just connect via Wifi or Ethernet to the SDR-Network or even use the USB-Port which acts as a network interface too. 
A huge frequency range from 100 kHz up to 1.7 GHz opens up a wide field of operations. For example the reception of world wide short wave transmissions or the detection of ship as well as aircraft positions by receiving Automatic Identification System Messages and Automatic Dependent Surveillance Broadcasts. The built-in wide band amplifier ensures a strong signal to noise ratio to receive weak signals. Strong RF-Shielding assures a low level of cross talk between the RF-Path and the processing unit to keep the noise level as low as possible. 
The SDR has its own power supply allowing more than 2 hours of mobile usage, easily extendable with an external USB battery pack. In combination with dedicated smartphone or tablet Apps the solution becomes mobile allowing to go into areas with very low radio interferences."
