Dr. Mitola Delivered Keynote at CrownCom 2010

On June 9th - 11th 2010, in Cannes, France, Dr. Joseph Mitola III, Vice President for the Research Enterprise at Stevens Institute of Technology, delivered a keynote address at the CrownCom 2010 International Conference on Cognitive Radio Oriented Wireless Networks and Communication.

Hoboken, NJ, June 19, 2010 --(PR.com)-- The aim of CrownCom is to bring together original, high-quality contributions that present new techniques, concepts and analysis in the area of cognitive radio algorithms and system design. Specific topics of the conference included: spectrum sensing and pooling, network design and optimization, software-defined and flexible radio architectures, channel modeling, collaborative communications, as well as beamforming and multicast methods.

As the world's leading authority on software-defined radio and inventor of cognitive radio systems, Dr. Mitola's keynote was entitled, "Cognitive Radio technology: First decade and the way ahead." He began by addressing the evolution of Cognitive Radio, from its technical foundation to system methodology and explanation of Dynamic Spectrum Access. Dr. Mitola then highlighted the potential methods for revenue generation, specifically citing things such as content tailoring, platform differentiation and the leveraging of network agility as key sources. Future developments foresee Cognitive Radio being used in popular technology devices such as Androids, iPhones and for the Military. There will be spectrum pooling, cost reduction and introduction of novel software tools for porting and adapting.

About Dr. Joseph Mitola III

Dr. Joseph Mitola joined Stevens Institute of Technology as Vice President of Research Enterprise, and as a Distinguished Professor in a joint faculty position with the School of Systems and Enterprises and the Charles V. Schaeffer School of Engineering and Science.

While working as an engineer at Electronic Systems (E-Systems) in the 1970's, and later as Chief Scientist, Dr. Mitola learned first-hand the fundamental and enduring principles of systems engineering through the building of airborne communications systems. Tasked with building the U.S. Presidential airplane, E-Systems now known as Raytheon, was required to build not only the best airplane in the world, but one that was equipped with highly secure, sophisticated communications and electronic systems that would allow the Commander in Chief to direct U.S. military forces from anywhere in the world, while in flight.

Following his career at E-Systems, Dr. Mitola utilized his systems engineering skills at The MITRE Corporation, serving as General Systems Engineer for the U.S. Defense Airborne Reconnaissance Office, where he was responsible for the transition of billions of dollars worth of legacy sensors, communications, and information systems to low cost mission effective modernized tactical distributed processing networks. During his fifteen years at MITRE, Dr. Mitola received acclaim as Chief Scientist of the DoD Federally Funded R&D Center where he led program teams to invent novel solutions to critical DoD mission shortfalls in telecommunications and information processing. Between 2002 and 2005, while on loan from MITRE to the U.S. DoD, Dr. Mitola served as Special Assistant to the Director of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), to develop trustable cognitive systems.

Dr. Mitola's extensive industry and government experience has also included technical leadership positions at ITT Corporation's Electrophysics Laboratory, and at the Harris Corporation, Advanced Decision Systems.
