The Software Defined Radio Forum said it will vote on several important documents at a meeting coming up in Denver.

The group is a nonprofit industry association supporting advancement of reconfigurable wireless technology. Its meeting is Nov. 9 following the SDR ’07 technical conference and product exposition.

Ballot initiatives include “a derivation of cognitive radio applications for public safety,” which is based on a review of terrorist bombings in London in 2005. The group will consider how software defined and cognitive radio technologies could help first responders communicate more effectively.

Also on their docket: a paper on cognitive radio definitions developed with an IEEE working group to provide definitions supported by both organizations; a smart antenna application programming interface specification; and recommendations to NASA for its Space Telecommunications Radio System.
