ARTEMIS: Free Signal Identification Software

Marco, a reader of RTL-SDR.com and user of our sister site sigidwiki.com has been developing some Windows software to display the sigidwiki.com database in an easier to access format. The software is called Artemis and can be downloaded from http://markslab.tk/project-artemis/.

Artemis allows for various example signals to be quickly viewed with the corresponding example waterfall image, frequency, bandwidth and other information. There is also a filtering function that allows you to search by frequency and type of signal.

Marco writes that he would love to hear any user requests for new features such as more filters, improvements, or anything else as well as any bug reports. We also note that data such as frequencies and bandwidths provided in the sigidwiki.com database may not yet be 100% correct since the wiki is relatively new and is yet to mature.

      Hmm I just checked the site and download and it seems to be all fine. Are you perhaps getting misled by one of the ads from the free hosting he uses? When you click on download you’ll be redirected to an ad, and you’ll need to click the “Skip Ad” button on the top right to download the zip file. There’s no need to enter any information at all.

      Hi Henk,
      The site isn’t corrupt; you simply clicked (by mistake, I suppose) on some advertising. I have added to my website the instructions to correctly download Artemis (and all other stuff on markslab.tk) with some additional info about why I’m using redirect link services (Adf.ly). I’m sorry if you have encountered this kind of issues but I’m trying to keep Artemis free of charge (unfortunately, website server cost me money…) . Please, If you have other questions feel free to post your doubt.
      PS: thanks Admin for your fast reply!

    Hi. We desperately need software that truly identifies digital (Amateur) radio signals in order to be able to run FLdigi, or HR deluxe or any other digital mode amatur radio Program. Without this software capability, one is forced to go to anb outside wiki and listen to 20 or more modes over and over again searching for one mode that might sound similar to what one is hearing and wants to decode.

    And we need this ability on the Mac. It seems to me that this is needed, and would have a very wide appeal to a large SDR user Ham Radio audience, and that this aspect of the hobby will not be complete with out such ability. Why this is not already incorporated in all software rig control and Digital communication software is beyond me. If the software is able to read the various modes for decoding, there already exists the technology to evaluate and identify received digital signals matching them against all the existing modes already existing as code in the program and identify the one sought for.

    when can we expect this? I imagine such an idea an project could generate considerable funding.

    It could be an adjunct program to everything else out there, and should be eventually incorporated in all the major programs for digital ham radio.

    73,

      It looks like you cant update the database. Gives ERR when attempting to connect. I think the database probably has too much traffic.

      It’s being reported as a virus from AVAST ! I’ll check it with an online multi-engine virus scanner now…

        This definitely smells… 10 antivirus out of 56 report it as a virus!

          I can’t offer any definite proof (and I don’t know the coder personally), but usually software that is new or rarely downloaded overall is falsely detected as a virus by many AV’s. Also the virus report mentions “MSIL/Packed.Confuser.J” which indicates that the author used .dll packing, which very often falsely trips virus scanners. Google for “MSIL/Packed.Confuser.J” and you’ll see many reports of false positives.
