Article
Full-text available
Throughout the 1990s, Software Defined Radio (SDR) technology was viewed almost exclusively as a solution for interoperability problems between various military standards, waveforms and devices. In the meantime, Cognitive Radio (CR) – a novel communication paradigm which embodies SDR with intelligence and self-reconfigurability properties – has eme...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper proposes a new algorithm for jammer detection in wide-band (WB) cognitive radio networks. We consider a WB which comprises of multiple fixed length narrowband sub-bands (SB). These SBs are occupied by narrow-band signals which can be legitimate users or a jammer. To reduce the overhead of the analog-to-digital conversion (ADC), compresse...
Thesis
Full-text available
Cognitive Radio can be defined as a radio that is aware of its surround ings and adapts intelligently. While being cited mainly as an enabler for solving spectrum scarcity problems by the means of Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA), perspectives and potential applications of Cognitive Radio technology far surpass the DSA alone. For example, cognitive ca...

Full-text available
Cognitive radio (CR) promises to be a solution for the spectrum underutilization problems. However, security issues pertaining to cognitive radio technology are still an understudied topic. One of the prevailing such issues are intelligent radio frequency (RF) jamming attacks, where adversaries are able to exploit on-the-fly reconfigurability poten...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper addresses the experimental study of the wide band signal estimation and reconstruction using the established compressive sampling (CS) methods. For this purpose, a hardware test bed was setup inter-connecting a wide band SDR based hand held military radio (SWAVE HH or HH), vector signal generator, bi-directional coupler, attenuators, PC...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
On-the-fly reconfigurability capabilities and learning prospectives of Cognitive Radios inherently bring a set of new security issues. One of them is intelligent radio frequency jamming, where adversary is able to deploy advanced jamming strategies to degrade performance of the communication system. In this paper, we observe the jamming/anti-jammin...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Cognitive Radio as a technological breakthrough and enabler for concepts such as Opportunistic Spectrum Access and Dynamic Spectrum Access has so far received significant attention from the research community from a theoretical standpoint. In this work, we build upon the theoretical foundation and present an implementation of a Software Defined Rad...
Chapter
While potentially solving the spectrum underutilization problem using methods such as dynamic and opportunistic spectrum access, Cognitive Radios (CRs) also bring a set of security issues and potential breaches that have to be addressed. These issues come from the two important capabilities implemented within CRs: their cognition ability and reconf...
Conference Paper
The employment of sophisticated tools for data analysis in distributed or structurally complex systems requires the development of specific architectures and data fusion strategies in order to integrate heterogeneous information coming from the environmental sensors. Recently, intelligent sensor networks have been widely deployed for various purpos...
Thesis
Full-text available
With the development of powerful computational resources such as Digital Signal Processors and Field Programmable Gate Arrays, it has become possible to utilize many radio functions via software. This is the main concept of an up-and-coming technology of Software Defined Radio. In the Thesis, a number of platforms for implementation of Software...
