Elektrobit (EB) has released a whitepaper on Cognitive Communication Networks that explores how cognitive radio can be utilized in military communications. The white paper discusses how cognitive radio works and how future wireless systems equipped with cognitive radio capabilities could dynamically access new frequency bands, and at the same time protect higher-priority users on the same bands from harmful interference. Cognitive radio capabilities utilized in military communications would enable mobile troops to communicate and share information even more effectively.
