New DARPA challenge takes aim at spectrum sharing

C4ISRNew DARPA challenge takes aim at spectrum sharing By Mark Pomerleau Mar 24, 2016 The Defense Department has decided to make a game out of the problem of spectrum crowding.  The Spectrum Collaboration Challenge (SC2), the Defense Advanced Projects Research Agency’s newest Grand Challenge, will reward teams that develop systems  that collaboratively (as opposed to competitively) adapt in real time to changes in congested electromagnetic spectrum, DARPA said in a release.     SC2’s primary goal is to imbue radios with advanced machine-learning capabilities to collectively develop strategies for optimizing use of the wireless spectrum that aren’t possible today due to the intrinsically inefficient approach of pre-allocating exclusive access to designated frequencies.  Making more efficient use of the finite spectrum environment has become a DOD priority as the spectrum becomes ever more…
