Executive Summary

In Cognitive Radio Networks (CRNs), regulatory bodies, such as the FCC, enforce an extremely demanding detectability requirement to protect primary users' communications, which can hardly be achieved with one-time sensing using only a single sensor. Most of the previous work focused on either cooperative sensing or sensing scheduling as a viable means to improve the detection performance without studying their interactions. In this paper, the authors propose an optimal spectrum sensing framework in CRNs that jointly exploits sensors' cooperation and sensing scheduling to meet the desired detection performance with minimum sensing overhead.
