Army ready to approach industry for electromagnetic spectrum projects to enhance radio communications

PICATINNY ARSENAL, N.J. – U.S. Army researchers are ready to kick-off several programs to develop radio communications-access technologies to improve awareness of spectrum activity; protect U.S. activity in the electromagnetic spectrum; and enable U.S. military forces to relocate and share spectrum anytime and anywhere access is needed.John KellerOct 25th, 2018

Army ready to approach industry for electromagnetic spectrum projects to enhance radio communicationsPICATINNY ARSENAL, N.J. – U.S. Army researchers are ready to kick-off several programs to develop radio communications-access technologies to improve awareness of spectrum activity; protect U.S. activity in the electromagnetic spectrum; and enable U.S. military forces to relocate and share spectrum anytime and anywhere access is needed.

Officials of the Army Contracting Command at Picatinny Arsenal, N.J., issued a special notice on Wednesday (W15QKN-19-Z-04B1) announcing their intent to issue requests for prototype proposals and white papers under authority of the National Spectrum Consortium (NSC) in Summerville, S.C.

The goals of upcoming solicitations are developing the means to:

— mitigate risks of Advanced Wireless Services-3 commercial use of the 1695-to-1710-MHz, 1755-to-1780-MHz, and 2155-to-2180-MHz radio communications bands;

— enable military forces to relocate to new spectrum bands;

— operate in compressed spectrum bands without interfering with other users;

— dynamically share spectrum with other systems without electro-magnetic interference;

— operate without interference in spectra that are congested with users in co-located bands; and

— operate amid adversary electronic warfare (EW) attempts to deny access to spectrum.

The National Spectrum Consortium has the expertise to meet these goals, Army researchers say. The consortium comprises a mixture of traditional contractors, non-traditional contractors, utility producers, investment firms, non-governmental organizations, and academia involved in electromagnetic spectrum usage and protection.

Only members of the NSC may submit proposals or white papers related to this program. The Army will provide the NSC with calls for proposals or white papers, and NSC officials will make those calls available to their members.

NSC member proposals will be submitted to the NSC’s agent — Advanced Technology International (ATI) in Summerville, S.C., the consortium management firm.
