Army CERDEC, South Korean Agency Partner to Establish Spectrum Mgmt Interoperability Process

korea-partnershipThe U.S. Army‘s Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center and South Korea’s agency for defense development have partnered to help spectrum managers gain a shared understanding of requirements and plans within an operational area.

CERDEC and ADD personnel demonstrated the Coalition Spectrum Management Interoperability process during a joint meeting held July 18 at Aberdeen Proving Ground in Maryland, the Army said Aug. 26.

The process is based on the Standard Spectrum Resource Format Pub 8 data exchange format approved by the Defense Department and NATO and meant to support exchange of spectrum data between the U.S. and South Korea.

“CERDEC and the Republic of Korea investigated and developed an interoperable message exchange format for force structure, equipment data, frequency requests and frequency assignments,” said Yuriy Posherstnik, coalition spectrum management technical project officer at CERDEC’s space and terrestrial communications directorate.

“The technology we developed during this effort could be applied to a tactical communications network,” noted  Jaehyun Ham, coalition spectrum management technical project manager at ADD’s 2nd R&D institute.

The Army said the collaborative project involved data generation, display mappings, development of import and export features for spectrum management tools as well as modular and tool-agnostic data translation application programming interface, implementation of operational scenarios and operational import and export demonstrations.
