EE 7310 Cognitive Radio ( )
Contents This course provides an introduction to cognitive radios, a new type of radio that will be capable of cooperatively adapting transmission modes, channels, and protocols to make the best use of the available spectrum. Such radios will include wideband receivers and transmitters, with many of their functions implemented in software, rather than hardware, to enable greater flexibility. While the most commonly cited example of uses of such radios is sharing of under-used portions of the spectrum with licensed (primary) users, the basic technology also can lead to improved uses of the ISM bands. In addition, the cooperative and adaptive nature of the radios has large consequences for jamming/anti-jamming in military communications, representing both a threat to current systems and an opportunity for their evolution to more secure modes. The course provides a background in the technology that makes these radios possible as well as providing guidance on their benefits in multiple access systems.
