• NITRD Coordination Areas

    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.

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.


Wireless Spectrum R&D Project Inventory

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 is updated approximately every two years. The current version contains projects that have been completed, or are scheduled to be complete, between January 1, 2018 and December 31, 2021. 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 Wendy Wigen at nco@nitrd.gov for more information.
