Secondary and opportunistic spectrum use will require reliable dependable trusted spectrum sensing capabilities that are fundamental to any advanced radio systems application. Recently proposed advanced radio systems based on sensing technology combine sensing and the protocols and cognitive engines that use the sensing results into proprietary architectures. This model of development reduces innovation and limits the opportunities for integrating new component technologies for better system performance. Many different sensing techniques have been defined so far, there has been no effort to ensure interoperability between sensors and clients provided by different manufacturers. Sensing techniques have been defined without considering their compatibility with other existing solutions. The P1900.6 group develops a standard that defines the information exchange between spectrum sensors and their clients in radiocommunication systems. The logical interface and supporting data structures used for information exchange are defined abstractly without constraining the sensing technology, client design, or data link between sensor and client.
