NRDZ Partnership -- Workshop #2

Shattering siloed spectrum sharing mechanisms for future NRDZs

Meeting outcomes

General information

November 16 and 17, 2021.
Virtually via Zoom (Zoom access information will be provided to registered attendees).

Scope and Goal: National Radio Dynamic Zones (NRDZ) are being advocated for as a means to advance the state of wireless communications, to support the design of next generation wireless networks with practical, real-world, regional test sites, and to ensure the continued successful operation of passive services in an increasingly crowded spectrum. The utility of the radio spectrum depends on the harmonious coexistence of active communications systems, passive scientific systems, and orbital remote sensing systems. The state in spectrum coexistence mechanisms across these technologies is vastly different: from automated and measurement-driven spectrum allocation for commercial broadband to manual leases across scientific users, and disparate users are generally not aware of each other's capabilities.

The goal of this workshop is to familiarize the broader community of active, scientific and remote sensing users with the state-of-the-art in their respective spectrum management and allocation mechanisms. A hackathon 'sprint' will challenge participants to develop and propose solutions to grand challenges faced by spectrum sharing inside NRDZs.
