Newest DARPA Challenge: ‘Shift Paradigm’ With Robot Radio

Several scientific groups submitted to DARPA’s Spectrum Collaboration Challenge (SC2) effort on September 2. The contest will end in 2019 and  submissions will be tested and a winner chosen. The first three finalists will be awarded with $3.5 million to advance their work. Since the invention of radio, management of the radio frequency spectrum has not changed significantly, primarily divided into specific areas of bandwidth, and distributed or sold to various government and/or commercial entities.DARPA program manager Paul Tilghman explained that the major objective of the effort is to allow a radio signal to be clearly broadcast and received, in the presence of competing signals. “The goal of the Spectrum Collaboration Challenge is to take a bunch of radio systems that have no prior knowledge of each other and say: ‘Your goal is to get the best, most optimal use of the spectrum you can possibly can.’ We’re going to do…
