The radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic spectrum is a limited natural resource necessary for an ever-growing number of services and systems.

Abstract

The radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic spectrum is a limited natural resource necessary for an ever-growing number of services and systems. It is used in several applications, such as mobile communications, radio and television broadcasting, as well as remote sensing. Together with oil and water, the RF spectrum now represents one of the most important, significant, crucial, and critical commodities due to the huge impact of radio services on society. Both high-quality/high-rate wireless services (4G and 5G) as well as accurate and reliable remote-sensing capabilities (air traffic control (ATC), Earth geophysical monitoring, defense and security applications) call for increased amounts of bandwidth [1], [2]. Besides, basic electromagnetic considerations, such as good foliage penetration [3], low path loss attenuation, and reduced sizes of the devices push some systems to coexist in the same frequency band [4] (for instance VHF and UHF). As a result, the RF spectrum congestion problem has been attracting the interest of many scientists and engineers during the last few years and is currently becoming one of the hot topics in both regulation and research fields [5], [6].
