The primary focus of this proposed effort development of methods to allow for ultra fast wideband RF sensing and classification of unknown RF devices. In order for cognitive radio methods and techniques to be implemented substantial improvement in sensing and classification of non-cooperative RF devices must be addressed. The team is proposing a comprehensive approach that first provides ultra fast detection of hidden nodes and then determination of intent of the identified hidden node. BENEFIT: This program will have direct benefits to cognitive radio and next generation electronic warfare technology development. In addition to cognitive radio and electronic warfare applications for the military, there is increased demand for similar technologies in other non-military applications, law enforcement, business, consumer, and commercial markets. The result of this project is directly applicable to next-generation versions of commercial RF communication technologies.
