In this paper, dynamic spectrum management is studied for multiple cognitive tactical radio networks coexisting in the same area. A tactical radio network is composed of a transmitter which broadcasts the same information to its multiple receivers. First, the authors consider the problem of power minimization subject to a minimum rate constraint and a spectral mask constraint for a single tactical radio network with multiple receivers over parallel channels (parallel multicast channels). Then, they extend the iterative water-filling algorithm to multiple receivers for the coexistence of multiple cognitive tactical radio networks, meaning that there is no cooperation between the different networks.
