DARPA’s Microsystems Technology Office will hold a series of competitive events as the Agency’s next grand challenge—the Spectrum Collaboration Challenge (SC2)—unfolds over three years, starting in 2016. SC2 is the first-of-its-kind collaborative machine-learning competition to overcome scarcity in the radio frequency spectrum. Today, access to the spectrum is managed by dividing it into rigid, exclusively licensed bands.
Across the nation and around the world, the wireless revolution is fueling a voracious demand for access to the radio frequency (RF) spectrum. In the civilian sector, consumer devices from smartphones to wearable fitness recorders to smart kitchen appliances are competing for bandwidth. Managing this increasing demand, while combating what appears to be a looming scarcity of RF spectrum is a serious problem for our nation, militarily, socially, and economically.
