National Advanced Spectrum and Communications Test Network (NASCTN)


What is NASCTN?

The National Advanced Spectrum and Communications Test Network (NASCTN) provides a neutral forum for addressing spectrum-sharing challenges in an effort to accelerate the deployment of wireless technologies among commercial and federal users. NASCTN was created in 2015 and is a joint effort among the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) and the United States Department of Defense (DoD).

NASCTN’s Mission

NASCTN's mission is to provide robust test processes and validated measurement data necessary to develop, evaluate and deploy spectrum sharing technologies that can increase access to the spectrum by both Federal agencies and non-federal spectrum users.
