EM Spectrum DWG Session Agenda

1.  "IEEE 1900.6 has recently initiated a new standards project, IEEE P1900.6b, on the topic of the use of spectrum sensing information to support spectrum databases. This encompasses, for example, the geolocation databases that are currently a key area of work in TV white spaces, ....”

Has one of you with an IEEE subscription looked at 1900.6 and communicated with that chair to learn more about what that working group is doing with location parameters.  Also, how are these working groups dealing with specification of temporal parameters?

2. I will review in a set of slides the OpenSSRF open source EMF data model (see OpenSSRF Version 3.0 Diagrams) that Carey Beall mentioned.  See this March 25 2014 Presswire article: "Wireless Innovation Forum Announces New Spectrum Standard Specification Project”. Jesse Caulfield of Key Bridge Global LLC, who participated in our last session, led this project. It would be useful to discuss this in the context of the application areas below. It appears to me to be a well structured data model that could be useful in all of these application areas.

3. We’ve discussed possible applications in: 

— Cognitive radio: OpenSSRF was designed for cognitive radio. How can it be improved or made more spatially/temporally precise and/or interoperable with other systems, integratable with other data?) We talked about a 'Mt. Aetna' use case (see in the minutes of last session) in which identification and very precise temporal data about transmissions might be useful. The suggestion was that we focus on such use cases as they apply in disaster scenarios. 

— Mitigating interference with Earth Observation satellite communications: Several of you have expressed interest in this topic. It would be good to go into more detail about the problem and how an EM Spectrum encoding standard might help.

— IoT device identification (and perhaps including device security and privacy): (See this Jan. 30 Lidar News article, “Eliminating Crosstalk”, which focuses on lidar crosstalk, as, for example, in vehicle navigation.)

— Orientation of semiconductor devices to indoor and outdoor spatial coordinate reference systems: per Akinori’s comment in an earlier session.

— Consistent and integrated recording, monitoring, modelling, studying and reporting of electromagnetic fields' physical effects on molecules, nanoparticles and biological structures: I would provide a presentation on this topic.

4. After discussion, we would try to make some decisions: Where do we go from here? Where’s the low-hanging fruit? From the perspectives of each of those attending, what are the clearest and most urgent requirements?

We invite anyone interested in any of these topics to participate in this session, or communicate with us on our email server, or post comments on the EM Spectrum DWG wiki. To join the EM Spectrum DWG listserv, please send email to lmckee76 at gmail dot com with your request.
