Abstract : This equipment award was aimed at funding to equip the cognitive radio laboratory (http://cognitive-radio.ece.unm.edu/) at the ECE Department of University of New Mexico with a Wideband Autonomous Cognitive Radio Development and Prototyping System that will augment the its on-going research program in cognitive radios with development, prototyping and testing capabilities. The requested equipment will expand the on-going research into developing a prototype of wideband autonomous cognitive radio system resulting in following benefits:The funds were used to assemble a Wideband Autonomous Cognitive Radio Development and Prototyping System (WACR Development and Prototyping System) consisting of three infrastructure modules (a Network Spectrum Analyzer, a Vector Signal Generator and a Rapid Printed Circuit Board (PCB) Fabrication Unit) and a Software Defined Radio (SDR) testbed made of several USRP SDR (Universal Software Radio Peripheral Software Defined Radio) platforms.The capabilities developed under this award has already had an impact on the cognitive radio research at the UNM in several ways, including new research funding opportunities, new research directions and validation avenues for graduate students, increased collaborations with the industry and new recruiting opportunities.
