The Office of Naval Research awarded a Department of Defense University Research Instrumentation Program (DURIP) project to Virginia Tech to expand CORNET to include an outdoor test bed with the deployment of 15 fixed outdoor nodes and two mobiles nodes. The test bed will be completed by summer 2014. Once complete, the outdoor nodes will be integrated with the existing CORNET test bed and function as part of the greater test bed infrastructure.
O-CORNET operates under the authorization of FCC designated call sign WH2XLE under an experimental license. All users are responsible for ensuring that their research is conducted within the limitations of the above license.
