Frequency mapping for the operational frequency manager
MetadataShow full item record
The Department of Defense (DOD) has placed great emphasis on the networking and connectivity of forces over the last several years. Programs include the Global Information Grid (GIG), Force Net, and Net Centric Warfare to name a few. These programs emphasize and stress the warfighter's need to stay connected to their appropriate operational command and control structure during operations. The value of this connectivity is crucial to both the individual warfighter and the command structure as a force multiplier in modern warfare. One solution to this problem of connectivity is giving our operating forces the tools and knowledge of existing network infrastructure that details the information regarding the location, frequency and power out of existing nodes and spectrum analysis. The knowledge and ability of a trained Frequency Manager will allow our forces to use the full electromagnetic spectrum to maintain connectivity with their command structure. The goal of this research is to provide a systematic approach to detecting existing network and telecommunication frequencies and mapping their positions. This information can then used by a Frequency Manager for planning operational test exercises and for operational forces that may operate in an area that is frequency saturated. In these situations and with the knowledge of existing frequencies these forces will be better able to manage, configure, and exploit existing network communications. The experimental study will encompass the collection, data processing, modeling and mapping of existing networks and their electromagnetic effects in both a rural and urban environment using the TNT 802.16 OFDM test bed in the San Francisco Bay area and Camp Roberts.
