DARPA Issues Spectrum Radio Challenge

DARPA announced it wants to find innovative approaches for robust radio communications in congested and contested environments and issued a challenge, asking teams to create software-defined radio protocols to resolve such interference. The DARPA Spectrum Challenge is a competition with a US$150,000 prize for the team able to guarantee successful communication in a shared spectrum using a standardized radio hardware platform. This technology is key for military and civilian radio communications.  Clear communications is essential in disaster relief response or emergency situations in which organizations frequently work together. Those agencies responding need to be able to share spectrum without advance planning or other coordination. DARPA will officially open registration for its Spectrum Challenge in January 2013.
