Testing for coexistence in crowded and contested RF environments

Presented by Tim Fountain

In this session we will discuss some of the key research, development, test & evaluation challenges encountered when developing and deploying RADAR & EW systems that need to function in congested and/or contested RF environments. Topics include an overview of the issues facing coexistence, such as a contested and congested spectrum, spectral sensing and sharing, and dynamic spectrum allocation. We will highlight some real-world examples of coexistence challenges such as 5G and satellite transmissions at C-band frequencies, and aircraft RADAR altimeters and GPS interference with co-located satellite-based communication. This session will conclude with an overview of the characteristics and architectures of test systems that are used to create realistic RF environments to test systems under real-world operational conditions in a controlled laboratory environment.

In this webinar, you will learn how to/ more about:

  • Coexistence testing
  • Contested & congested RF Environement
  • Spectral sensing
