Abstract
We propose the development of an architecture for cognitive radio networks (CRN) to provide robust operation in jamming environments. The cold re-start problem is addressed through an innovative signaling framework, and an adaptive transmission approach is applied for mitigating various levels of jamming. Finally, cross-layer optimization methods are presented in order to optimize the performance of a CRN in the presence of jamming. The proposed architecture strikes a balance between transmission efficiency and the strength of communication security.
