The Cognitive Radio Network Testbed (CORNET) is a network of 48 software-defined radios built on open source software in conjunction with FCC experimental licenses to provide a research and education platform for cognitive radio.
The Cognitive Radio Test System (CRTS) is a developing open source software framework that facilitates test and evaluation of custom cognitive radios and their cognitive engines in real, tailored RF environments.

You will need to click on the shield and allow mixed content. For more information, please visit Mozilla Security Blog.
These tutorials and the accompanying GNU Radio flowgraphs can be installed and run on the CORNET testbed nodes. Alternatively, they can be run on users’ own computers whether they already have GNU Radio installed, or wish to run it within a virtual machine or from a bootable image.The tutorials in this initial set currently do not require over-the-air signals or the USRP RF front ends used in CORNET, although some of the tutorials include an option to use low-cost RTL 2832 based SDR receivers such as those available at http://www.nooelec.com/store/. Please note that these are large files. They will take time to download!
