Executive Summary

To enable coexistence between an OFDM based opportunistic spectrum access system and a primary user, the authors proposed two novel methods called EAIC (Extended Active Interference Cancellation) and EAIC-H (EAIC-Hybrid) for spectral sculpting of OFDM signal. In EAIC and EAIC-H, cancellation signals are added to OFDM signal to cancel interference in target spectrum band caused by data tones, so that interference perceived by primary user can be limited. The cancellation signal (EAIC tones) has longer time duration than that of OFDM symbol, which enables a better notching capability than that of most existing methods.
