Efficient Dynamic Spectrum Access Implementation
Shared Spectrum Company developed Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) technology that enables military radio communication systems to deliver robust, non-interrupted wireless connectivity to tactical networks technology. DSA allows network operators to adapt to last minute spectrum assignment planning changes as well as changes made after deployment. DSA also allows the radios to overcome even unplanned, unexpected interference sources. The technology was initially developed for the DARPA XG program, and now several military radio platforms are currently being extended to integrate the technology. The authors present a case study of dynamic spectrum access software technical and operational integration challenges. They also present the benefits from developing and deploying a single core radio software application that follows commercial iPhone-like solutions.
