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...
