Background for Systems, methods and devices with databases and automated reports for the electronic spectrum management

1. “1.

The present invention is a spectrum management and analysis system for radio frequency signals. It is more specifically for identifying and storing signals and devices automatically, comparing data from multiple devices, and automatically creating reports for wireless communication spectrum.

2. “2.

Generally, the prior art is to provide wireless communication spectrum management in order to detect devices for managing space. Spectrum management is the process of regulating radio frequency usage to maximize efficiency and social benefit. The fact that there are so many devices emitting wireless signals at different frequencies, and with different standards of technology, is a problem in managing spectrum effectively. With the various regulations around spectrum usage, effective spectrum management is difficult and can only be achieved over time.

Another challenge to effective spectrum management is that spectrum demand continues to grow despite the limited amount of spectrum available. In recent years, wireless technologies have grown exponentially. Spectrum has therefore become a valuable asset that needs to be used efficiently. “Systems and methods must be developed to manage and optimize spectrum usage.

Most spectrum management devices can be divided into two main types. The first is a spectrum analyzer, where the device is fitted with a scanner. The receiver is designed to give spectral data for a limited window of frequencies that are related to a particular and limited communication standard. These narrowly tailored devices have problems as the cellular standard changes and/or spectrum usage changes impact spectrum space for these technologies. These narrowly tailored devices are too complex to modify, and the hardware and software changes become difficult. This leads to the purchase of a completely new device. This type of device can only be used for a limited purpose and cannot meet the needs of spectrum management.

The second type of spectrum management device uses a method that is difficult to use and requires expensive equipment. To achieve a comprehensive spectrum management view, and to complete all necessary tasks, this device becomes a conglomerate software and hardware devices which are both difficult to use and hard to move from one place to another.

The current spectrum management device is not able to handle the following problems: “There may be additional problems with the spectrum management device, but at least four are major ones.

The patent application by Sugar filed on May 9, 2007 discloses a method for identifying wireless devices from the received radio frequency energy. This includes, in particular, devices emitting frequency-hopping spread spectrum. The received RF energy is used to generate pulse metric data that represents the characteristics of this energy. Pulses are divided into groups according to their pulse metric information, so that each group contains pulses with similar pulse metric values. The partitioning process is used to identify the sources of wireless signals. Iteratively subdividing groups into subgroups is the partitioning process. This continues until all subgroups are determined to contain pulses from a single origin. Each iteration is based on a different set of pulse metric values. The output data (e.g. a device name) identifies the source of wireless signals in any subgroup determined to have pulses coming from a single point.

U.S. Pat. No. No. 8,131,239 titled?Methods and apparatus for remote radio-frequency device detection? The patent application Walker et. al. filed on Aug. 21, 2007 describes methods and apparatus to detect the presence of electronic communication devices such as cellular telephones. A complex RF signal is transmitted in a target region, and the nonlinear reflectance signals received by the target region are processed to determine a response measurement. The response measurement can be compared with a predetermined filter response profile in order to detect a radio device that has a filter response characteristic corresponding to the response measurement. In some embodiments the predetermined filter profile includes a band-edge profil, so comparing the measurement to a filter response profile also involves comparing it to the band-edge to detect a radio device with a band-edge characteristic. The invention is intended to be useful for detecting hidden electronic equipment.

The data is stored as a plurality cluster records based on identifiers associated with the received emissions from multiple first devices over time. The cluster records over time are analyzed to correlate the detections of targets across multiple first devices. It is designed to reduce disruptions from devices that use the same frequency, and to protect data.

A DSA-enabled devices can sense spectrum usage in a particular region and select one or several communication channels based on that detected spectrum usage. Devices may also detect other DSA enabled devices that they can join to form DSA networks. A DSA network can monitor spectrum usage by cooperative and noncooperative devices to dynamically select the channels for communication, while avoiding or decreasing interference with other devices. A DSA network can include detectors like a TV detector or radar detector. It could also be a narrow-band, wide-band, wireless microphone, or radar detector.

U.S. Pat. No. RE43,066 – “System and method of reuse of communication spectrum for fixed and portable applications with an efficient method to minimize interference” Mark Allen McHenry filed on Dec. 2, 2008. He describes a communication system network that allows secondary spectrum use without interference. The system employs a modulation technique to measure background signals, which eliminates self generated interference. It also identifies secondary signals to all primary users using on/off modulation. This allows easy resolution of interference complaints. The system uses gain probes with high processing that allow propagation measurements to take place without causing interference to primary users. The system uses background signals to identify nearby receivers. It then modifies local frequency assignments in order to reduce interference from secondary systems due to nonlinear mixing interference, spurs, phase noise and out-of band transmitted signals. By analyzing the background signal amplitude, the system can infer a secondary node?s mobility and elevation (and thus its likelihood to cause interference). The frequency assignment for mobile or elevated nodes is more conservative than that of stationary nodes.

The 22nd of 2003 discloses a method, software, and functions related to managing activity within an unlicensed band of radio frequencies that are shared by multiple signals in terms both frequency and timing. The band’s signal pulse energy is detected, and used to classify the signals according to their type. Spectrum intelligence (also known as spectrum intelligence) is used to take actions in a device, or network of devices, to avoid interference with other signals and to optimize the simultaneous use of a frequency band. Spectrum intelligence can be used by a network administrator or device user to suggest possible actions, or automatically trigger actions on a network or device to maintain desired performance.

U.S. Pat. No. No. 8,249 631 for a?Transmission Power Allocation/Control Method, Communication Device and Program? Ryo Sawai is the inventor, and filed on Jul. The method of allocating transmission power for a second service that makes secondary use of spectrum allocated to a primary service is taught in the 21st century. It can be applied to any node capable to communicate with another secondary usage node. The method calculates the interference power that is acceptable for two or multiple second communication service when they are operating and then allocates transmission powers to these two or several second communication services.
