The ARA wireless living lab is the fourth PAWR platform funded by the National Science Foundation, U.S. Department of Agriculture, and the PAWR Industry Consortium. It is a community platform to drive research, education, and innovation in rural broadband. 

The ARA Project Team would like to request the community’s help in identifying the technologies, experiments, and use cases that are of interest to the research endeavors led by the broad community. Your input through this survey will be invaluable in helping maximize the utility of ARA to the community and is highly appreciated.  The survey is accessible via this following link:

For your reference, the First ARA Research Community Workshop was held at the end of June 2021. The presentations and recordings of the workshop can be found at . In particular, an overview of the ARA project can be found at  

As a gentle reminder, you are most welcome to join the ARA initiative, and please refer to for details.
