The DARPA SC2 Colosseum Test Bed
Volume 35, Number 1 (2019)

Exemplifying its focus on making critical contributions to critical challenges, the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) is pleased to present this issue describing the Colosseum—the first-of-its-kind wireless communication test bed that APL developed for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Spectrum Collaboration Challenge (SC2). This test bed enables research into artificial intelligence and machine learning for networked systems—systems that autonomously negotiate use of the RF spectrum in real time based on instantaneous user demand, available spectrum, and environmental conditions. Through this effort, APL has provided a new capability enabling research beyond constrained RF allocations, ultimately contributing to improved resilience of networked systems on the battlefield.
