Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: James Neel, President
Award Amount: $68,336.00
Abstract:
Leveraging game theoretic principles developed on an ONR basic research grant by the prime investigator at Virginia Tech, CRT has developed a suite of low-complexity joint spectrum monitoring and management algorithms intended for deployment as embedded processes in stationary nodes in ad-hoc… More

Spectrum Planning and Management Capability for Radio Communications

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: James Neel, President
Award Amount: $700,866.00
Abstract:
This project is developing a distributed cognitive spectrum management (CSM) solution that significantly reduces the user control burden and dynamically optimizes a network's use of spectrum in real-time to changing conditions. In the base period, Phase II will adapt the Phase I CSM solution to… More

Cognitive Radio Technology

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: James Neel, President
Award Amount: $99,969.00
Abstract:
This project will research and develop enabling technologies for realizing a multi-functional Software Defined Radio based Cognitive Radio Network (SDR based CRN) capability, which will maximize spectrum efficiency by utilizing both unused and underused spectrum of opportunity. The "SDR based CRN"… More

Spectrum Agile Network Distributed Subcarrier Allocation

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: James Neel, President
Award Amount: $65,023.00
Abstract:
Incorporating distributed subcarrier allocation (DSCA) capability into WNW will improve operational effectiveness and allow WNW networks to operate under more restrictive spectrum constraints. Phase I of this project will establish the technical feasibility of DSCA by accomplishing the following. 1)… More
