Architecture for Cognitive Radio Operations for UAS

The objective of the project is to demonstrate the enabling role of cognitive radio (CR) technologies for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) operating in the National Airspace system (NAS). They will explore how to apply a CR system architecture based on a policy-based approach to adaptive spectrum access that can provide significant benefits with minimum investment in a UAS environment. The project will be guided by concepts of operation (CONOPs), developed with the customer in order to establish the relevance of CR for UAS aviation flight operations.
