Executive Summary

As the Presidential Memorandum (Presidential Memorandum: Unleashing the Wireless Broadband Revolution; https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/presidential-memorandum-unleashing-wireless-broadband-revolution; June 2010) established and the PCAST report (Report to the President: Realizing the Full Potential of Government-Held Spectrum to Spur Economic Growth; http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/microsites/ostp/pcast_spectrum_report_final_july_20_2012.pdf) confirmed, both economic growth and the strategic needs of the United States depend increasingly on access to wireless spectrum. Concurrently, the traditional approach of completely clearing a band of spectrum in order to reallocate it to another service has become economically infeasible. Acknowledging this, The PCAST report identified the spectrum access system, or SAS, to be a key enabler for moving from our legacy spectrum assignment system to a new spectrum sharing ecosystem. Key to building an SAS based ecosystem is the need for accurate, accessible, and secure user data; reluctance of stakeholders to share their data has been identified as a major impediment. WSRD Workshop VI: Federal - Commercial Spectrum Data: Understanding Information Exchange Needs, Issues, and Approaches was held in October, 2014, to identify the issues surrounding information exchange as it pertains to spectrum sharing, and to recommend appropriate R&D to mitigate them...
