War Driving

I have been using the Wigle Android app for a while now but wanted to build a Kali/Raspberry/Kismet device. I have a spare Raspberry Pi3B and GPS unit so just needed a battery pack and some USB WiFi dongles.

First attempts were recorded to USB memory stick but later replaced by configuring the device as an access point and using SSL to login and retrieve files.

Flight Cases

I have replaced and combined the Radio Cabinet and the Radio Bag with flight cases.

The cabinet took up a lot of space and was near impossible to move around due to weight. I can now divide the equipment, and weight, up into several flight cases. Change is frequent and its now a lot easier to move the cases around and modify the configurations etc.

The current three sections are Mesh, Radio and Network. “Mesh” at the top has the AREDN Node and the Raspberry Pi Servers and the Mesh Mikrotik Router. “Radio” in the middle has the SIMOCO radios and the Yeasu FT-857D. “Network” at the bottom has the Main Mikrotik Router, the Dev Servers and the switches.

MESH Box

I needed a go box of mesh stuffs that could be deployed quickly and contain some PIs, an access point and an AREDN node.

I am quite fond of the Really Useful Box series and have a number of them with project parts and tools in etc. So I choose a 9L box to try and fit some bits in.
