Title: Dynamic spectrum access for networked radios

Abstract: A dynamic spectrum access method for cooperative wireless devices. In one example, a method of establishing a wireless network includes scanning and analyzing a selected frequency band to detect non-cooperative signals within the selected frequency band, determining whether a waveform including one or more radio frequency (RF) carriers and a plurality of intermodulation tones (for multi-carrier waveforms) can be placed within the selected frequency band without interfering with any detected non-cooperative signals, and selecting transmit frequencies for the plurality of RF carriers responsive to obtaining a non-interfering waveform placement solution.
