Our third thematic element towards “capitalizing across the spectrum” is around wireless technology and applications for areas of improvement. This area includes techniques and technologies for spectrum sharing and coexistence between active and passive users, interference mitigation, spectrum monitoring and metrology, energy efficiency and sustainability.
As 6G cellular communications networks move higher in frequency, the spectrum use overlaps with traditional SatCom. The added bandwidth at these higher frequencies is attractive for network operators as more and more data-hungry users join the network. Our community helps solve these issues by developing and demonstrating capabilities to coexist. For example, SpectrumX, initiated by a 5-year, $25M center grant from the U.S. National Science Foundation, is the world’s largest academic hub where all radio spectrum stakeholders can innovate, collaborate, and contribute to maximizing social welfare of this precious resource.
