Cognitive radio capabilities for public safety communications
“We also know that there is a significant amount of ongoing cognitive radio research and development in academia, as well as government and industry labs. We are looking for responses to this RFI that will help us assess the current state-of-the-art and maturity of cognitive radio technology, near-term deployment opportunities and long-term research challenges. This information will also be incorporated into the Forum’s ongoing technology roadmap project.”
The primary output of this technology assessment effort will be a report, generated by the SIG, which will be directed at readers in positions of public safety community leadership, users, researchers and product developers. The report will help "de-mystify" CR for the leadership and users, and provide regulators, policy makers, and standards developers with increased awareness of future technological developments and trends. Researchers and product developers will benefit from the report’s identification of technology gaps and dependencies to help define future studies and developments. The report will also be valuable to public safety agencies to help plan communications system lifecycles and identify near-term opportunities for enhancement of functional capabilities, along with longer-term trends.
These responses will help set a broad research, development and implementation agenda to the community, and will be communicated to entities such as the FCC and public safety audiences. Organizations and individuals providing responses to this Request for Information (RFI) will be referenced in the report for their contributions (unless they elect to remain anonymous) and thus can benefit from the enhanced exposure to their potential customers. Furthermore, these responses can help steer the direction taken by potential customers for future systems and technologies.
