Abstract The Institute for Telecommunication Sciences (ITS) is the research and engineering laboratory of The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), an agency of the Department of Commerce (DOC). ITS performs basic research in radio science that provides the technical foundation for NTIAs policy development and spectrum management activities. ITS research enhances scientific knowledge and understanding in cutting-edge areas of telecommunications technology. The Institutes research capacity and expertise is used to analyze new and emerging technologies, and to contribute to standards creation. Research results are broadly disseminated through peer-reviewed publications as well as through technical contributions and recommendations to standards bodies. ITS staff represent U.S. interests in many national and international telecommunication conferences and standards organizations. Through leadership roles in various working groups, ITS helps to influence development of international standards and policies to support the full and fair competitiveness of the U.S. communications and information technology sectors. ITS research helps to drive innovation and contribute to the development of communications and broadband policies that enable a robust telecommunication infrastructure, ensure system integrity, support e-commerce, and protect an open global Internet.
