Cognitive Radio Technologies:
Services and Software for Intelligent Wireless Networks
CRT awarded a SBIR Phase I contract to develop game theoretic techniques for
SATCOM spectrum management.

James Neel named one of CIT's GAP 50 Tech Entrepreneurs for Virginia.

CRT awarded a $989,316 SBIR Phase II contract to bring cognitive spectrum
management to military MANETs.

James Neel will be giving tutorials / presentations at the following upcoming events:

CRT has been awarded a Phase I SBIR contract from the Air Force under solicitation
AF 083-160: Cognitive Radio Technology. Issues to be addressed under this
award include discontiguous DSA, cross-layer network optimization, and MACs for
cognitive radio networks.

CRT will be giving a brief overview of its work done in Phase I of its Navy SBIR on
embedded spectrum management at the JTRS Science and Technology Forum
(JSTeF) in San Diego on January 27, 2009, which is co-sited with the
SDR Forum
January general meeting.

James Neel's 2007 SDR Forum paper, "Synthetic Symmetry for Cognitive Radio
Networks" was named a "Best Paper" for the 2007 Conference. It can downloaded
from CRT's
publications page.

Dr. Neel also gave a tutorial at the SDR Forum 08 Conference on analyzing cognitive
radio networks. Slides for that tutorial are also posted on CRT's
publications page.

CRT awarded a Phase I SBIR contract (# N00039-08-C-0085) to develop an
embedded Spectrum Management and Planning Tool for JTRS software radios based
on CRT's patent-pending
Zero-Overhead Network Optimization algorithms.

James Neel and Jeff Reed will give a tutorial at the 2008 Wireless @ VT Wireless
Summer School (June 4-6) on commercial wireless protocols.

All of CRT (James Neel, Jeff Reed, and Bin Le) will be attending the SDR Forum
technical conference and presenting three papers on cognitive radio.

CRT officially joins the SDR Forum.

James Neel will present a paper on the design of cognitive radio networks at
CrownCom 2007 on August 1.

James Neel will give a tutorial at the 2007 MPRG Symposium (June 8) on networking
cognitive radios
