Title: Minimizing mutual interference for multi-radio co-existence platforms

Abstract: In general, in one aspect, the disclosure describes a method that includes selecting an offset between start of communications of a first radio in a multi-radio platform (MRP) and start of communications of a second radio in the MRP. Synchronizing clocks of the first radio and the second radio to maintain the offset. Determining safe zones within the communications of the second radio based on configuration of the first radio and the second radio and the selected offset. The safe zones are locations that minimize conflicts between receiving operations of the first radio that are at fixed locations and transmitting operations of the second radio and transmitting operations of the first radio that are at fixed locations and receiving operations of the second radio.
