NRDZ Primer

National Radio Dynamic Zones Partnership..

A workshop series supported by NSF

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 our partnership is to develop a vision and create a roadmap to enable the realization of NRDZs. Our workshop series will provide a venue to promote fundamental research, foster collaborative activities, and serve as a forum for the exchange of ideas and research results.
