The cognition in DSS is studied via a proposed cognitive cycle to emphasis upon "brain-empowered" communication. A concrete mapping between the phases of cognitive cycle and the phases of engineering design applied in DSS is also proposed thereby bridging the gap between the abstract and the practical implementation of cognitive techniques. The design of cognitive DSS relies on the system and channel modeling to well-assess the external environment. Hence, this chapter provides an extensive account of models of cognitive DSS for both fixed satellite services and land mobile scenarios. In light of these models, we also present an elaborate taxonomy of cognitive techniques in DSS. This chapter serves as an overview for DSS and applicability of cognition in DSS. It also throws light upon open problems for future research.
