Raw IQ Data
We propose an algorithm based on linear prediction that can perform both the lossless and near-lossless compression of RF signals. The proposed algorithm is coupled with two signal detection methods to determine the presence of relevant signals and apply varying levels of loss as needed. The first method uses spectrum sensing techniques, while the second one takes advantage of the error computed in each iteration of the Levinson-Durbin algorithm. These algorithms have been integrated as a new pre-processing stage into FAPEC, a data compressor first designed for space missions.
The DroneDetect dataset consists of 7 different models of popular Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) including the new DJI Mavic 2 Air S, DJI Mavic Pro, DJI Mavic Pro 2, DJI Inspire 2, DJI Mavic Mini, DJI Phantom 4 and the Parrot Disco. Recordings were collected using a Nuand BladeRF SDR and using open source software GNURadio. There are 4 subsets of data included in this dataset, the UAS signals in the presence of Bluetooth interference, in the presence of Wi-Fi signals, in the presence of both and with no interference.
