Dynamic Spectrum Allocation

I am looking for someone to research appropriate algorithms for
dynamically allocating telemetry spectrum.  This appears to be similar to
other dynamic bin packing problems.  There is a limited amount of
bandwidth for which multiple aircraft are vying.  Further, the bandwidth
required for each aircraft may change at unknown intervals.  A central
controller must inform each aircraft what frequency (and spectrum width)
each aircraft may use.  The time duration for each allocation may or may
not be known.  The problem is therefore 2 dimensional in that there are
both spectrum and time dimensions.  Although there are certainly no
guarantees, there is some potential for a grant to research this topic. 

Further queries may be made to:
