There continues to be growing pressure to sell off spectrum currently allocated for defense purposes in favor of private sector applications. These pressures come at a time when Department of Defense DoD spectrum needs are growing at an exponential pace, raising concerns that we will soon reach a point where they can no longer be met. In response, the Range Commanders Council RCC Frequency Management Group FMG developed a baseline set of standard metrics to measure spectrum utilization, demand, efficiency, and operational effectiveness. Using this standard RCC 707-14 as a foundation, a Spectrum Management Metrics Toolkit SMMT has been developed to calculate, plot, and display these metrics. The challenge now is determining how to successfully apply these metrics to inform and construct the arguments needed to maintain access to the needed spectrum. The purpose of this presentation is to describe progress toward the development of a methodology and a set of analytics based on the RCC standard to build such a compelling narrative. The methodology is based on a data analytics and communication concept, called Story Points, which seeks to guide users in the discovery, composition, and delivery of targeted narratives and supporting graphics derived through mining available data sources.
