© 2015 IEEE. Licensed Shared Access is a European standardisation effort which promotes repository based quasi-static hierarchical spectrum sharing. In this scheme the sharing time base is in the order of months if not years. For widespread use of Licensed Shared Access, shrinking the sharing time base is crucial. In this paper we propose a scheme to reduce the sharing time base to seconds or minutes scale. We present a new technique named lightweight Radio Environment Map based on a Kalman Filter derived from geo-location aware spectrum measurements, which can be run at the shared access licensee end. Our objective is to determine the active area of a static or slowly moving incumbent. We consider a challenging scenario where a large fraction of measurements is missing and the available measurements are highly distorted. Performance of our incumbent active area detection approach is evaluated by simulating a low power incumbent in an urban cellular environment. Simulation results show a substantial improvement of missed detection area in comparison to the counterpart that does not use our lightweight Radio Environment Map.
