BKND-Pro is designed to allow advanced measurements for radio astronomy research and SETI (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence). Controlled by the RadioUniversePRO software, it is possible to select 2 operating modes:
1) High speed – Radio Astronomy: to sample the entire band in 100,000 channels with a spectral resolution of 500 Hz, perfect for different studies in radio astronomy such as the precise measurements of the differential doppler effect in the neutral hydrogen line in the Milky Way or Pulsar detection.
2) High resolution – SETI: to sample the entire band up to 25 million channels with a spectral resolution of 2 Hz, perfect to perform SETI research.
Currently BKND-Pro backend is in an advanced stage of development so the final technical features may vary. BKND-Pro is designed to be used together with SPIDER radio telescopes and RadioUniversePRO software.
