The bladeRF is the ultimate SDR platform for pentesters and researchers.
MITM GSM traffic. Manipulate GPS. Capture and replay Remote Controls, and much more.


The Blade RF 2.0 Micro xA4 is the undisputed SDR champion, boasting unmatched frequency range, huge bandwidth, incredible on-board processing capacity backed with full software support.

For penetration testers, the killer-feature is the ability to run 3G/LTE Base-Stations via OpenBTS, allowing testing, manipulation and MITM for cellular IOT devices.

The Standard Pack contains everything needed to build a BTS: RX and TX amplifiers and 4x GSM antennas. The Deluxe Pack contains 4x Wide-Band general purpose antennas to extend your testing surface.


The BladeRF is a mature, wide-band full duplex 2x2 MIMO RF transceiver, covering 47MHz to 6GHz.

It is compatible with all major SDR suites across multiple platforms: GNU Radio via gr-osmosdr, Pothos via SoapySDR, SDRange, SDR Console, SDR # via sdrsharp-bladeRF, MathWorks MATLAB® & Simulink® via libbladeRF bindings.

BladeRF libraries, utilities, firmware and HDL are open source with public schematics. There are extensive SDKs available free of charge.

The wide-band range, extensive bandwidth and full duplex capabilities make the BladeRF the ideal tool for multiple use-cases:

  • Remote Control Analysis: Analyse, replay and emulate car remotes, alarms, garage remotes, etc.
  • GPS Manipulation: Block, manipulate or adjust GPS signals for location-aware devices
  • MITM GSM devices: Capture and manipulate data from cellular IOT devices.
  • Advanced RFID Analysis: Analyse and communicate with all RFID tags, regardless of their frequency.
  • Standard SDR functionality: ADB-S Tracking, satellite-communication, packet-sniffing, signal analysis, etc

    BladeRF Packs

    Lab401 provides two BladeRF configurations or packs.Use our guide below to understand which pack is best suited to your needs.

    • Starter Pack
      The Starter Pack provides the minimum configuration required for creating a BTS in laboratory conditions. The BladeRF's powerful architecture has made it the "go-to" BTS solution. If you're looking to get started with GSM/S7/OpenBTS hacking - this is the pack for you.
    • Deluxe Pack
      Built on the foundations of the Starter Park, the Deluxe Pack provides the complete SDR & BTS configuration - in the laboratory and in the field.
      With a full-range of antennas and and two amplifiers, the Deluxe Pack is aimed for real-world SDR exercises and in-the-field BTS pen-test operations - and everything in between.
