On August 2, 2022 at the 2022 IEEE International Symposium on Electromagnetic Compatibility, Signal & Power Integrity, one of the oldest and largest conferences of its kind, ITS Electronic Engineer Dr. Bob Johnk co-chaired a special session on “Critical Challenges and Solutions in Spectrum Engineering” with Dr. Sarah Seguin of The Aerospace Corporation. This special session dove deeply into current research on ways to prevent interference and promote efficient spectrum use through technology- and operational-based approaches.
ITS authored four of the seven accepted papers for this session, and Dr. Johnk's paper was one of 10 finalists for Best in Conference. ITS expertise in essential EMC engineering disciplines—spectrum measurements, spectrum propagation modeling, and interference analysis—supports NTIA’s Office of Spectrum Management and informs spectrum sharing policy and regulation as well as answering EMC questions posed by other federal agencies. These papers describe recent research efforts aimed at developing well-informed and accurate electromagnetic compatibility models to insure optimal and trouble-free use of the radio spectrum. All four accepted ITS authored papers are now available in the NTIA Technical Publications library. They will eventually appear in the Proceedings of the 2022 IEEE International Symposium on Electromagnetic Compatibility, Signal & Power Integrity.
