Advanced Waveforms and RF
Spectral agility
Improving spectrum utilization of baseband waveforms (e.g. OFDM in 3GPP and WiFi standards) when the available channels are non-contiguous and shared with multiple systems
Energy efficiency
Raising efficiency of Multi-channel transmissions with joint RF-Baseband techniques
Key Advantages
Addressing the limitations of current Physical Layer techniques when used in emerging architectures
