An Evaluation of Cognitive Channel Allocation Strategies for Coalition Deployments
In this paper, the authors consider the problem of interference management in coalition deployments, where platoons of soldiers from different nations communicate using the same frequency bands, and hence can interfere with each other. Traditional static channel allocation strategies are not effective in this scenario, due to the high degree of mobility of the platoons. They propose a distributed approach based on Cognitive Radio technology: each platoon dynamically adjusts its channel allocation based on the level of interference measured on each channel. To account for the lack of coordination among the platoons, they model this distributed resource allocation problem as a strategic game.
