Airean is a proof-of-concept application showing that eavesdropping of GSM traffic (voice calls, mobile locations, SMS messages) is possible using a standard desktop PC with a small investment in hardware.

The application requires a hardware interface to capture signals. Currently the following devices are supported:
* Ettus Research USRP
* Great Scott Gadgets HackRF (will be implemented when the device is released)

Airean has the following capabilities:
* Scan the GSM spectrum
* Show nearby GSM base stations on a map
* Monitor broadcast channels for active mobile terminals
* With knowledge of session key: decode downlink SMS messages and audio
* By interfacing to external programs: obtain session key from a captured communication with high probability
