Posted January 7, 2016 in Patrick K. Sullivan, Space and Defense

The mission of the National Spectrum Consortium is to foster collaboration between government and industry to identify, develop, and demonstrate the enabling technologies necessary to broaden the military and commercial access to and use of the electromagnetic spectrum.

When you watch television, send a text message, or reheat leftovers in a microwave oven, you are using electromagnetic energy. Military operations depend on the electromagnetic spectrum to communicate or manage high-tech weapon systems. Without this amazing technology, the world you know could not exist.

With the explosion of wireless broadband, it is now time to reexamine how we think of the electromagnetic spectrum; how it impacts the way we work and play. Used for years by television and radio, demands and emerging chaos for national broadband are creating new opportunities in electromagnetic spectrum usage.

Oceanit is pleased to announce that it recently joined the National Spectrum Consortium. Eligible companies, universities, and research organizations are industry leaders in wireless technologies and signal processing. “We are excited to be a part of this esteemed industry organization,” stated President and CEO Dr. Patrick Sullivan. “Oceanit is committed to providing innovative and disruptive technologies to overcome the challenges associated with new frontiers in electromagnetic spectrum.”
