Finding the ET Signal from the Cosmic Noise

This paper highlights a methodological approach designed to enhance the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) by hypothesizing that a transmission technosignature would likely have two features: 1) be wideband in the microwave or higher frequency range that originates from a hub within a supposed ET interplanetary navigation/communication (nav/comm) network, and 2) contain x-ray pulsar-based navigation (XNAV) metadata. Potential contributions to the field include improved accuracy in finding transmission technosignatures and other technosignatures in the electromagnetic spectrum, a common standard in reaching a Schelling Point (a mutual realization of how we and ETs can find each other), and operationalizing models such as the Drake Equation.
