Despite the byline, the words in this story belong to Paige Atkins, director of the Defense Spectrum Organization. Despite several attempts to get someone to change the way the story looks online so that Paige’s words — which she spoke during an interview with me–are actually attributed to Paige, my byline is still on the story.
I got a chance after the interview to meet Ms. Atkins in person at the Software Radio Summit. She’s in the driver’s seat behind an ambitious vision for defense communications–dynamic spectrum management through the use of cognitive radio and other technologies to allow access to spectrum anywhere under any conditions. But I’ll let her tell you about it.
