Contents

Overview

The Wireless Spectrum R&D (WSRD) Senior Steering Group (SSG) was formed in late 2010 to coordinate spectrum-related research and development activities both across the Federal government and with academia and the private sector. The purpose is to help coordinate and inform ongoing activities across Federal agencies and to facilitate efficient and effective investment in spectrum sharing technologies and systems. These activities are consistent with the guiding principles of WSRD, which are transparency, smart investment, and the solicitation of opportunities for technology transfer across and beyond the Federal government.


Scope and Authority

WSRD was formed to inventory, coordinate, and make recommendations on Federal programs to advance the goals of the June 28, 2010 Presidential Memorandum: Unleashing the Wireless Broadband Revolution, Section 3. In addition, WSRD will work with academia and the private sector to help develop priorities, encourage private investment, and develop public/private partnerships when appropriate.


Functions

Current functions and activities include
  • Maintaining an inventory of recently completed and ongoing wireless spectrum research and development projects across the Federal agencies.
  • Maintaining an inventory of wireless spectrum testing facilities across the United States.
  • Holding workshops that include federal, academic, and private sector researchers to assist in developing recommendations for the Federal research portfolio.
  • Developing recommendations for future research needs.

Designed for the purposes of information exchange, it is our hope that this will prove useful for government, academic, and industry researchers in need of spectrum testing facilities.

We invite you to contribute information on testing facilities that are not currently listed, and that are available for use. Please contact wigen@nitrd.gov for more information.
