Abstract
Despite the rapid development of innovations supporting advanced communications and other uses of the electromagnetic spectrum, comparatively little progress has been made in the technology base supporting the management and scheduling of limited spectrum resources. The proposed effort will break new ground in the domain of frequency scheduling and management by advancing the science and practical capability to measure and improve the efficiency of frequency scheduling. The key products of the Phase I effort include a set of frequency scheduling optimization methods, scheduling algorithm evaluation results, and a collection of Integrated Frequency Deconfliction System (IFDS) technology augmentation tools targeted at addressing key voids while providing for rapid IFDS capability expansion. The proposed products and approach thus serve to complement Department of Defense (DoD) investments in related frequency management and mission scheduling support technologies. If the proposal is awarded, the Phase II effort will extend upon these developments to refine and harden a comprehensive capability enabling frequency managers to more effectively define, analyze, and generate optimized frequency management strategies, both for advanced planning and real-time metrics adjustment.
