Electromagnetic Spectrum

What makes our modern lives relatively easy, interconnected and seamless is this seldomly thought of, but very vital soft infrastructure – the electromagnetic spectrum.

Sign up to the Electromagnetic Spectrum Innovation Network

The digital world on which we have come to rely (Wi-Fi, Internet of Things, radio broadcasts to name a few) is underpinned by this invisible finite resource, but it lacks resilience and is rapidly becoming the widest open door for anyone who wants to disrupt critical services. In order for future innovative solutions to function, both effectively and safely, this needs to be addressed. Understanding the resilience of new approaches will also be important in developing innovative solutions which draw on electromagnetic energy (EME), without congesting this further.

The Electromagnetic Spectrum Innovation Network aims to draw on the combined knowledge of various sectors to identify key cross-sector challenges and deliver progress on those that need to be addressed. With KTN’s vast sectorial expertise and networks, we are well placed to align overlapping challenges and solutions.

To find out how this affects the future of your sector, sign up to become a part of this Innovation Network’s community.

What is the Electromagnetic Spectrum and why should you care?  

As technologies progress, we are becoming increasingly reliant on spectrum use, from how we get our information and are entertained, to ensuring national security. So, if anything was to go wrong, it could have significant implications on how we live our life.
