Abstract

The spectrum is a finite resource that has been pushed to the limit. New applications and approaches must contend with the legacy of inflexible policies and band assignments. New approaches involving adaptive and reconfigurable wireless systems and policies, able to flexibly share spectrum in real time, is greatly needed. Implementing this new perspective will require joint research in technology, policy, and economics. To this end, we describe the formation of a hub for Spectrum Management with Adaptive and Reconfigurable Technologies (SMART Hub), which will perform cross-cutting research in reconfigurable circuit and system technology, policy, economics, and security to enable the quick launch of a new paradigm in spectrum-using systems. Consequently, what is typically a multi-decade process can be accelerated on myriad spectrum sharing fronts.
