Welcome to the website of SPECTRA (Spectrum and energy efficiency in 4G communication systems and beyond).

SPECTRA is a Celtic Project from call 7. It began on September 2010 and will run until August 2014.

Co-ordinated by Thales Communications and Security, it has seven partners from France, Spain and Monaco as illustrated in the following figure.

The primary objective of SPECTRA is to combine new cognitive radio algorithms with innovative approaches on Radio Frequency (RF) front-end and base band components to bring novelties in key areas related to interference-limited and energy-efficient systems, which is going to be demonstrated on a developed proof-of-concept able to communicate cognitively in real time.

A summary of the project is available here.
