The article reports on the initiative of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in the U.S. to develop dynamic spectrum-access technologies. This move aims to allow military forces to utilize whatever available airwaves in a geographic region on a split-second notice. The capability came from DARPA's Wireless Network after Next project, which is sponsored by the U.S. Army. DARPA wants to leverage commercial technology in AWNS to allow soldiers access to mission-critical information at all times.
