In this paper, a centralized Power Control (PC) scheme and an interference channel learning method are jointly tackled to allow a Cognitive Radio Network (CRN) access to the frequency band of a Primary User (PU) operating based on an Adaptive Coding and Modulation (ACM) protocol. The learning process enabler is a cooperative Modulation and Coding Classification (MCC) technique which estimates the Modulation and Coding scheme (MCS) of the PU. Due to the lack of cooperation between the PU and the CRN, the CRN exploits this multilevel MCC sensing feedback as implicit channel state information (CSI) of the PU link in order to constantly monitor the impact of the aggregated interference it causes. In this paper, an algorithm is developed for maximizing the CRN throughput (the PC optimization objective) and simultaneously learning how to mitigate PU interference (the optimization problem constraint) by using only the MCC information. Ideal approaches for this problem setting with high convergence rate are the cutting plane methods (CPM). Here, we focus on the analytic center cutting plane method (ACCPM) and the center of gravity cutting plane method (CGCPM) whose effectiveness in the proposed simultaneous PC and interference channel learning algorithm is demonstrated through numerical simulations.

We study the performance of a cognitive underlay system (US) that employs a power control mechanism at the secondary transmitter (ST) from a deployment perspective. Existing baseline models considered for performance analysis either assume the knowledge of involved channels at the ST or retrieve this information by means of a band manager or a feedback channel; however, such situations rarely exist in practice. Motivated by this fact, we propose a novel approach that incorporates estimation of the involved channels at the ST in order to characterize the performance of the US in terms of interference power received at the primary receiver and throughput at the secondary receiver (or secondary throughput). Moreover, we apply an outage constraint that captures the impact of imperfect channel knowledge, particularly on the uncertain interference. Besides this, we employ a transmit power constraint at the ST to classify the operation of the US in terms of an interference-limited regime and a power-limited regime. In addition, we characterize the expressions of the uncertain interference and the secondary throughput for the case where the involved channels encounter Nakagami-m fading. Finally, we investigate a fundamental tradeoff between the estimation time and the secondary throughput depicting an optimized performance of the US. [less ▲]

Reliable spectrum cartography of directive sources depends on an accurate estimation of the direction of transmission (DoT) as well as the transmission power. Joint estimation of power and DoT of a directive source using ML estimation techniques is considered in this paper. We further analyze the parametric identifiability conditions of the problem, develop the estimation algorithm, and derive the Cramer-Rao-Bound (CRB) for the two situations: a) where the source signal is known to the sensors, and b) where the sensors are not aware of the source signal but its distribution. Particularly, we devise a specific sensor placement/selection setup for the symmetric antenna patterned sources which leads to identifiability of the problem. Finally, numerical results verifies the efficiency and accuracy of the provided estimation algorithms in this paper. [less ▲]

The lack of available unlicensed spectrum together with the increasing spectrum demand by multimedia applications has resulted in a spectrum scarcity problem, which affects Satellite Communications (SatCom) as well as terrestrial systems. The goal of this paper is to propose Resource Allocation (RA) techniques, i.e. carrier, power and bandwidth allocation, for a cognitive spectrum utilization scenario where the satellite system aims at exploiting the spectrum allocated to terrestrial networks as the incumbent users without imposing harmful interference to them. In particular, we focus on the microwave frequency bands 17.7-19.7 GHz for the cognitive satellite downlink and 27.5-29.5 GHz for the cognitive satellite uplink, although the proposed techniques can be easily extended to other bands. In the first case, assuming that the satellite terminals are equipped with multiple Low Block Noise Converters (LNB), we propose a joint beamforming and carrier allocation scheme to enable cognitive Space-to-Earth communications in the shared spectrum where Fixed Service (FS) microwave links have priority of operation. In the second case, however, the cognitive satellite uplink should not cause harmful interference to the incumbent FS system. For the latter, we propose a Joint Power and Carrier Allocation (JPCA) strategy followed by a bandwidth allocation scheme which guarantees protection of the terrestrial FS system while maximizing the satellite total throughput. The proposed cognitive satellite exploitation techniques are validated with numerical simulations considering realistic system parameters. It is shown that the proposed cognitive exploitation framework represents a promising approach for enhancing the throughput of conventional satellite systems. [less ▲]
