Spectrum technologies are shaping the way our world connects, communicates, and functions. Radio nodes connect through a nearly ubiquitous wireless mesh of other nodes, access points, satellites, and base stations to support an ever-expanding panorama of applications, spanning communication, autonomous navigation and transportation, radar-based geo-sciences, soil-sciences, renewable energy, space surveillance, environment and healthcare, smart buildings and grids, precision agriculture, consumer and industrial Internet-of-Things (IoT), and other elements of the emerging smart world. This paper offers an overview on the impact of the current and future diverse applications on the radio spectrum. Specific applications to be addressed include astronomy, health, atmospheric, geosciences, and wildfire monitoring. These applications along with many other emerging applications highlight the critical need of implementation of Intelligent Radios and dynamic spectrum access techniques that enable efficient spectrum management.
