This project formulates new models for radiometer spectrum access needs that are based on a first principles description of the associated geophysical sensing performance and the unique properties of Earth Exploration Satellite Service (EESS) passive measurements. These models are incorporated into economic frameworks to facilitate the design of a robust commercial market that can co-exist with passive spectrum access by EESS users. The poster reports on progress in both the intellectual merit and broader impact components of the project, and outlines future research directions.
