A Practical Approach to Placing Coastal Sensors for Spectrum Sharing in the 3.5 GHz Band

Metadata Updated: December 6, 2019

This dataset contains the results of simulated deployments of Environmental Sensing Capability (ESC) sensors along the coasts of the contiguous United States in the 3.5 GHz band. Commercial-federal spectrum sharing in the 3.5 GHz band requires the ESC sensors to detect federal incumbent shipborne radar in order to protect it from harmful interference from commercial users. We use existing tower sites as candidate locations for the sensors and the Irregular Terrain Model (ITM) in point-to-point mode to compute the path loss. The results include sensor location, antenna height, probability of detection coverage, probability of false alarm for each Dynamic Protection Area (DPA), i.e., a predefined geographic area inside which radar may experience harmful interference.
