The electromagnetic spectrum is a valued shared resource. Its scientific use allows us to learn about our universe, measure and monitor our planet, and communicate scientific data. The use of the spectrum is managed by national, regional, and global regulatory frameworks. There are increasing demands for new or extended allocations because of vast technological advances in the past few years. Understanding spectrum management is important in the successful planning and execution of missions and…

Interference protection of radio astronomy services using cognitive radio spectrum sharing models
TLDR
Simulation is conducted for a constellation of low earth orbit satellites and the obtained results show that transmit opportunities exist for intersatellite links when the interweave spectrum sharing model is used without causing any interference to RASs or significantly increasing the end to end delay.

Reweighted Nuclear Norm and Reweighted Frobenius Norm Minimizations for Narrowband RFI Suppression on SAR System
TLDR
This paper proposes two methods, the reweighted nuclear norm (RNN) algorithm and the re Weighted Frobenius norm (RFN) algorithm, to separate the RFI and the useful signal, and strictly derive the closed-form solutions of the RNN and RFN minimization problems for complex radar signals.
Narrowband RFI Suppression for SAR System via Efficient Parameter-Free Decomposition Algorithm
TLDR
A novel “low-rank + sparse” decomposition model is employed to extract the low-rank RFI and protect the strong scatterers of a useful signal, which is explicit and more efficient than the previous augmented Lagrange function model.
Efficient Narrowband RFI Mitigation Algorithms for SAR Systems With Reweighted Tensor Structures
TLDR
Two reweighted algorithms are proposed, the re Weighted tensor nuclear norm (RTNN) and the reweighting tensor Frobenius norm (RTFN) algorithms, to approximate the rank function in a tensor and accurately extract the low-rank RFI tensor from the received signal tensor.
Fast Narrowband RFI Suppression Algorithms for SAR Systems via Matrix-Factorization Techniques
TLDR
The reweighted matrix-factorization (RMF) algorithm and the matrix-Factorization decomposition (MFD) algorithm are proposed to suppress narrowband RFI for SAR systems, and the proposed methods outperform the other methods for RFI suppression.
