Overview

The Wireless Spectrum R&D (WSRD) Interagency Working Group (IWG) 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.

This inventory is one of the tools that the group created to help reduce redundancy of research investments, foster collaboration, and inform the work of fellow research organizations in public, private, and academic sectors. The inventory contains projects that have been completed, or are scheduled to be complete, between January 1, 2015 and December 31, 2018, and are at Maturity level TRL-2 or above. This website includes information that Federal agencies have approved for public release and is not intended to be considered an exhaustive measure of activities in this area.

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.

Workshops and Reports

WSRD Workshop IX

"Radio Receiver Systems: R&D Innovation Needs, and Impacts on Technology and Policy"

National Science Foundation, Arlington, Virginia (May 5, 2017)

Principles of co-existence and interference tolerance are often overlooked and under-exploited in today’s radio receiver systems. For example, a receiver’s ability to accept wanted signals or reject unwanted signals impacts the quality of the information transmitted. The Wireless Spectrum R&D Interagency Working Group (WSRD) will hold a workshop, “Radio Receiver Systems: R&D Innovation Needs, and Impacts on Technology and Policy”, on May 5, 2017, from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM at the National Science Foundation, Arlington, Virginia. The workshop will address various signal reception topics including technology advances for receivers, transmitters, filters, antenna design, signal processing techniques, and policy issues.
