DENVER, 29 October 2007. Management of the Software Defined Radio (SDR) Forum (www.sdrforum.org), a nonprofit international industry association supporting the advancement of reconfigurable wireless technology, have announced that four documents are slated for membership approval at the organization's general meeting on Nov. 9, immediately following the SDR '07 technical conference and product exposition being held Nov. 5 through 8 in Denver.

The ballot initiatives include:

· a derivation of cognitive radio applications for public safety, based on a review of the 2005 terrorist bombings in London, and how the use of software defined and cognitive radio technologies could help first responders communicate more effectively in similar situations;

· a document on cognitive radio definitions developed in collaboration with the IEEE P1900.1 group to provide a single set of definitions supported by both organizations;

· a smart antenna application programming interface (API) specification that addresses a key need in the SDR community; and

· recommendations to NASA for its Space Telecommunications Radio System (STRS).

SDR Forum's annual technical conference, product exposition, and general meeting -- taking place at the Denver Marriott Tech Center from Nov. 5 through 9 -- will provide an international perspective of the current state of the art for advanced wireless communications and is open to anyone interested in SDR technology.
