The Networking and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD) Program's member agencies coordinate their NITRD research activities and plans by Program Component Areas (PCAs) or program focus areas. For each PCA, agency representatives meet in an Interagency Working Group (IWG) to exchange information and collaborate on research plans and activities such as testbeds, workshops, and cooperative solicitations.
... Executive Summary
The Wireless Spectrum R&D (WSRD) Senior Steering Group (SSG) has been formed under the auspices of the NITRD Subcommittee to coordinate spectrum‐related research and development activities across the Federal Government. The purpose is two‐fold: to help coordinate and inform ongoing activities across Federal agencies; and to facilitate the identification of potential improvements to the Government’s R&D portfolio with respect to the overall goals of the Presidential Memorandum on Unleashing the Wireless Broadband Revolution. This interim report covers the work of the WSRD SSG from its inception in late 2010 to the present. During its first seven months, WSRD has created an initial inventory of approximately 670 spectrum R&D projects across the Federal government and has planned a workshop to solicit input from beyond the Federal government on the strengths and weaknesses of the Federal R&D portfolio. The results of the inventory and a preliminary analysis of its findings are presented below. A few of the projects are highlighted in this report, and are particularly indicative of the government’s investments in innovative spectrum sharing technology. The activities undertaken to date are consistent with the guiding principles of WSRD (discussed more fully below), which are transparency, smart investment, and the solicitation of opportunities for technology transfer across and beyond the Federal Government. ...
