Policy-controlled dynamic spectrum access

February 4th, 2008

Next Friday, UMBC alumnus Filip Perich (PhD 2004) will talk about his recent work using policies expressed in the Semantic Web language OWL to control how software radios manage access to the radio spectrum.

We present an overview of the policy-controlled dynamic spectrum access technology, which provides an order-of-magnitude improvement to wireless communications and spectrum management in terms of spectrum access, capacity, planning requirements, ease of use, reliability, and jam resistance. We describe the current radio systems developed by Shared Spectrum Company as part of the DARPA XG program and provide results from field testing and benefit studies.

The talk, SSC Dynamic Spectrum Access Technology, will be 1:00pm-2:30pm in ITE 229 on Friday 8 February 2008.
