This article presents the details of the Cardinal RF (CardRF) dataset. CardRF is acquired to foster research in RF- based UAV detection and identification or RF fingerprinting. RF signals were collected from UAV controllers, UAV, Bluetooth, and Wi-Fi devices. Signals are collected at both visual line-of-sight and beyond-line-of-sight. The assumptions and procedure for the data acquisition are presented. A detailed explanation of how the data can be utilized is discussed. CardRF is over 65 GB in storage memory.
