Leidos has partnered withÂ Federated WirelessÂ to build aÂ technology for theÂ Defense Advanced Research Projects AgencyÂ to facilitateÂ expansion of commercial wireless-radar spectrum sharing.
DARPA awarded Leidos a potential one-year, $7.9 million contract under phase two of the agency’sÂ Shared Spectrum Access for Radar and Communications program.
Federated Wireless said Tuesday it aims to demonstrate the company’sÂ Spectrum Access ServiceÂ platform in conjunction with an integrated commercial LTE infrastructureÂ through the SSPARC project.
The SAS technology uses a neural network of radio sensors intendedÂ 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.
