Random notes from the SDR Forum General Meeting

The following came up during today’s SDR Forum General Meeting downselected to those things which were new / news to me.

SCORED (Software and COgnitive Radio for European Defense)

An overview is given in this presentation (pdf). Appears to combine Thales, INDRA, SELEX, and Ericsson with a primary focus on SDR with the hopes of adapting the SCA for use for European applications. CR architecture appears to be building on E2R architecture. It started in 2007.

NTIA DSA Coordination Group – generally keeps NTIA informed of DSA technology developments (can’t find a link, but it is mentioned on this site which means half of CRT knew of it even if the other half didn’t)

Peter Tenhula noted the # of short some spectrum lease arrangements were actually down in the most recent quarter (27 as opposed to 32). Spectrum Bridge may have entered the market too early, but then again it might pick up during the 700 MHz build-out.

26 FCC IDs for SDR have now been granted (as of June 2008). Of interest, new ones were granted to Aruba and Trango using DFS for ISM / UNII bands presumably on WiFi devices.

Some unspecified government cognitive radio R&D project in Japan is supposed to start up (and specify details?!?) in July 2008. A similar situation is apparently occuring in Korea. If I hear something more concrete, I’ll post links.
