Leidos has partnered with Federated Wireless to build a technology for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency to facilitate expansion of commercial wireless-radar spectrum sharing.
DARPA awarded Leidos a potential one-year, $7.9 million contract under phase two of the agency’s Shared Spectrum Access for Radar and Communications program.
Federated Wireless said Tuesday it aims to demonstrate the company’s Spectrum Access Service platform in conjunction with an integrated commercial LTE infrastructure through the SSPARC project.
The SAS technology uses a neural network of radio sensors intended to help organizations access and manage licensed spectrum.
DARPA launched the project in an effort to reduce spectrum congestion caused by an increase in wireless communication activity as well as unmanned and net-centric technology use.
