MRT Article on Cognitive Radio

Posted in Uncategorized at 7:29 pm by JamesNeel

MRT has an article up on cognitive radio and public safety. It touches on a number of different developments over the last year which should make cognitive radio and frequency agility in general easier to achieve – Bitwave’s flexible RFIC, Harris’s multiband public safety radio, the Shared Spectrum / Harris partnership.

It also mentions a $500 cognitive radio being developed by M/A COM and Shared Spectrum. Giving a little more context, I’m virtually certain that refers to the DARPA WNAN/WANN/WAND program where the networking part (WAND) is led by BBN and the hardware node is being designed by M/A COM. As part of the program there’s a mandate to include Shared Spectrum’s xG technology in the deployed solution.
