SDR recorder for NASA Cubes in Space

So for my CiS project I plan on using a Nooelec nano 3 SDR to pick up radio waves. The last thing I need is some way to record it. I thought about using a Trinket M0 and hooking up a sd card to that. But I am wondering if there are any small recorders that can record SDR data and store it on a Micro SD card. Thanks!

You can just use the basic rtl_sdr software from the drivers to record an IQ file.

Would this require a computer or can this be done with out one?

You'll definitely need a computer, USB SDRs are not standalone, and they must have some sort of compatible computing device to work.

The cheapest thing that could be probably be used is a Raspberry Pi Zero, or similar low cost single board computer.
