The Big Data Interagency Working Group (BD IWG) works to facilitate and further the goals of the White House Big Data R&D Initiative.
The CPS IWG is to coordinate programs, budgets, and policy recommendations for Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) research and development (R&D).
Cyber Security and Information Assurance (CSIA) Interagency Working Group coordinates the activities of the CSIA Program Component Area.
The Health Information Technology Research and Development Interagency Working Group coordinates programs, budgets and policy recommendations for Health IT R&D.
HCI&IM focuses on information interaction, integration, and management research to develop and measure the performance of new technologies.
HCSS R&D supports development of scientific foundations and enabling software and hardware technologies for the engineering, verification and validation, assurance, and certification of complex, networked, distributed computing systems and cyber-physical systems (CPS).
The HEC IWG coordinates the activities of the High End Computing (HEC) Infrastructure and Applications (I&A) and HEC Research and Development (R&D) Program Component Areas (PCAs).
LSN members coordinate Federal agency networking R&D in leading-edge networking technologies, services, and enhanced performance.
The purpose of the SPSQ IWG is to coordinate the R&D efforts across agencies that transform the frontiers of software science and engineering and to identify R&D areas in need of development that span the science and the technology of software creation and sustainment.
Formed to ensure and maximize successful coordination and collaboration across the Federal government in the important and growing area of video and image analytics
The Wireless Spectrum R&D (WSRD) Interagency Working Group (IWG) has been formed to coordinate spectrum-related research and development activities across the Federal government.
The Wireless Spectrum Research and Development Senior Steering Group (WSRD SSG)1 Workshop V titled: Understanding the Spectrum Environment: Data and Monitoring to Improve Spectrum Utilization, was hosted by the National Science Foundation (NSF) in Arlington, VA on March 31, 2014. This report summarizes the motivation, format, material, conclusions and recommendations drawn from that Workshop.
Spectrum sharing, as a means to enhance efficiency in spectrum use, has become a significant issue for the United States. Several initiatives by the Federal Government, including two Presidential Memorandums2, and the PCAST (Presidential Council of Advisors on Science and Technology) report3, have advocated collaborative research, development, and testing, to advance spectrum sharing technology and related rule-making. While researchers, investors, small business start-ups and well-established businesses have all made progress in this area, there are still significant issues to be addressed. For example, in order to operate successfully and reliably in a shared environment, the sharing entities involved need to trust that the data they receive is accurate and that the data they share will be handled properly, analyzed correctly, and only used for the purposes requested. One method of achieving this knowledge is by monitoring the spectrum, combined with an improved analysis of the resulting data.
Understanding the spectrum sharing environment is complex. While spectrum monitoring is performed today by industry, academia, and government, it usually tends to be narrowly focused to align with their respective mission and business incentives. Depending on the specific purpose and method of data acquisition, spectrum observations tend to be diverse and scattered among many sources. Observations also vary based on the methods used and the type of data requested. Although there are many approaches to measuring spectrum occupancy, no single method is applicable under all circumstances. Also, data requirements are highly variable and dependent on the intended use.
The WSRD Workshop V was conducted to bring together experts across government, industry, and academia to discuss how the use of spectrum data and monitoring can be used to better inform spectrum policy and management decisions, improve regulatory enforcement, and coordinate more efficient and dynamic spectrum usage. The goal of WSRD Workshop V was to capitalize on the collective expertise of the spectrum sharing thought leaders from government, industry, and academia in order to:
