Institute for Telecommunications Research (ITR) - 2013 Technology of the Year Award

The Technology of the Year award is presented to an individual or organization for a breakthrough product or technology in the field of Software Defined or Cognitive Radio as selected by the members. The Institute for Telecommunications Research (ITR) has led a consortium to deliver technology enabling a Global Sensor Network for remote sensor data gathering and bidirectional communication via low earth orbit satellites. The GSN uses software defined radio (SDR) technology for the space segment, ground station and terminals. The system includes new SDR based architectures and waveform designs that provide high spectral efficiency in heavily loaded multiuser scenarios. The end result is a cost effective, scalable and flexible system that is able to support very large numbers of users while maximising use of precious satellite frequency spectrum.
