The Institute for Telecommunications Research has led a consortium to develop a Global Sensor Network architecture for remote sensor data gathering and communication. The research has focused on a Low Earth Orbit (LEO) micro-satellite system, with support from the Australian federal government's Australian Space Research Program. We have explored the use of software defined radio (SDR) technology for the space segment, ground station and terminals. We have developed novel techniques for highly efficient one and two-way data communication with large numbers of remotely located sensors and devices. The system includes new architectures and waveform designs and makes innovative use of SDR. The end result is a cost effective, scalable and flexible system that is able to support very large numbers of users while requiring only a small amount of radio bandwidth.

NASA's Glenn Research Center in Cleveland, Ohio, is one of ten NASA centers. Glenn is an essential component of NASA and an integral contributor to the region.  Located near Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, Glenn's main campus, Lewis Field, is situated on 350 acres of land and contains more than 150 buildings. The world-class facilities at Lewis Field include wind tunnels, drop towers, vacuum chambers and an aircraft hangar. Glenn's Plum Brook Station is located 50 miles west of Cleveland in Sandusky, Ohio, on 6,400 acres of land. Plum Brook Station has large, unique facilities that simulate the environment of space. Both locations enable NASA, other governmental agencies, and academic and industry partners from across the country to perform specialized research and testing.

Demo: Building Radios the [GR]Easy Way


An enhanced GNU Radio flow is presented that seamlessly augments the standard GNU Radio framework with modules that reside in FPGAs, yet preserves the GNU Radio dynamics by providing full-custom radio hardware/software structures in seconds. By delegating portions of a GNU Radio flow graph to networked FPGAs, a larger class of software-defined radios can be implemented. Assembly of the signal processing structures within the FPGAs is accomplished using an enhanced flow where modules are customized, placed, and routed in seconds. With rapid FPGA assembly, a GNU Radio designer retains the ability to perform “what-if” experiments, which in turn greatly enhances productivity.

Top Ten Wanted Wireless Innovations - In 2010, The Wireless Innovation Forum initiated an ongoing project to identify major innovations that would be required to create the foundation of the next generation of wireless devices. These innovations, either technical, business or regulatory, if realized, would address various shortcomings in existing wireless communications from the point of view of the different stakeholders in the wireless industry value-chain, including users, radio or platform manufacturers, software and hardware component providers, operators and service providers, spectrum regulators. These innovations don’t necessarily need to result in patents or intellectual property, but they would serve to help the community in addressing emerging wireless communications requirements through improved performance of deliverables, reduced total life cost of ownership and the responsive and rapid deployment of standardized families of products, technologies, and services.
