GNSS-SDR, the open source GNSS software-defined receiver developed within AUDITOR, has been accepted as a software package in popular GNU/Linux distributions such as Debian and Ubuntu. This is a dissemination achievement which ensures
that AUDITOR’s research outcomes are effectively reaching the public audience under a free an open scheme, since it means that GNSS-SDR can be easily (and freely) installed in virtually any computer in the World. A single line
in a terminal ("sudo apt-get install gnss-sdr") is enough to get all the software dependencies and the software receiver itself installed automatically in your system. This includes 32 and 64 bits architectures, as well as ARM-based
Debian’s strict admission process guarantees that all files in the source code, as well as all other software dependencies, are adequately released under open source licenses that allow the free distribution of binaries. Software’s
public distribution and availability is ensured by a robust network of server mirrors around the World. This opens GNSS-SDR to a much wider audience, which can revert in more external contributions, in form of bug detection, bug
fixing, addition of new features, more testing, and generation of new ideas. It is likely that GNSS-SDR will be ported to other Debian-based Linux distributions, as happened with Ubuntu, making the software available to more users
with specific needs.
For Mac OS X users, GNSS-SDR is also available through the Macports package manager ("sudo port install gnss-sdr").
