NRDZ Partnership -- Kick-Off Meeting
November 10, 2020. 4-6PM EST
Virtually via Zoom (Zoom access information will be provided to registered attendees).
More information about the NRDZ pertnership can be found on our webpage.
Scope and Goal:
National Radio Dynamic Zones (NRDZ) are being advocated for as a means to advance the state of wireless communications and to support the design of next generation wireless networks with practical, real-world, regional test sites. The utility of the radio spectrum depends on the harmonious coexistence of active communications systems, passive scientific systems, and orbital remote sensing systems. Coexistence is currently handled through manual interference deconfliction, quiet zones, or innovation zones, and essentially reflect a static configuration of the spectrum. NRDZ's have the potential to provide a geographically bounded region where innovative transmitters and receivers can operate in such a way as to protect passive and existing users, while simultaneously supporting dynamic use of the radio spectrum by experimental devices.
The goal of this kick-off meeting is to bring together academics, government and industry researchers from both the active communications and passive sensing communities to define a vision and a roadmap for the creation of a National Radio Dynamic Zone. The outcome of this kick off meeting will inform future quarterly workshops organized by the research partnership, which will provide a venue for a deeper technical dive arond issues concerning NRDZ design, collaboration and publication of research ideas and results.
