Cognitive radios build on the work done in developing "software-defined radios" and in current military initiative to build a milti-mode broadband Joint Tactical Radio, both of which focus on embedding radio functionality in software vs. hardware components. Cognitive radios will also depend upon emerging R&D in a vast array of adaptive technologies for everything from spectrum awareness and sharing, to ad-hoc and connetionless networks, fractal antennas, agile sensing, and embedded receivers, But there are many challenges remaining, not the least of which is the development of new national and international policies for spectrum distribution and management.
