Daily Rules, Proposed Rules, and Notices of the Federal Government
The WSRD has held two workshops that addressed the challenge defined in that Presidential Memorandum and which included input from the academic and industry sectors. During WSRD's first Workshop held at Boulder, CO, on July 26, 2011, the participants indicated that a national-level testing environment is critical for validating spectrum sharing technology under realistic conditions; they also emphasized the value of a spectrum sharing testing environment for a diversity of users. At a second workshop, held in Berkeley, CA, in January, 2012, key concepts and criteria were established for spectrum sharing test and evaluation capabilities.
This third workshop will build on the progress we have made by identifying realistic projects whose implementation will significantly support the plan to meet the Presidential Memorandum's goals. This workshop will gather diverse, knowledgeable, and forward thinking stakeholders to advise us on this important step forward.
