Vahid and Sicker receive NSF grant to enable spectrum coexistence

The continuing growth in more densely deployed and higher data rate communications services coupled with the general increase in the dependency and importance of all spectrum services (e.g., radar, navigation, radio science) have created challenging coexistence problems.

Alireza Vahid (PI, assistant professor of EE) and Douglas Sicker (co-PI, professor of CS) are working with colleagues at UC San Diego to develop a new architecture called “SweepSpace” that benefits from the directional nature of future communications and enables a more efficient reuse of spectrum, space, and time.

This project has been funded through the Division of Astronomical Sciences at the National Science Foundation under the National Radio Dynamic Zone (NRDZ) program.
