This paper looks ahead at the future of wireless communications systems that can combine their resources and capabilities in order to enhance their overall ability to collect and convey information. Cognitive network teamwork has significant potential in the development of new public-safety, entertainment and military applications. Specifically, descriptions of the principles of formation, coordination and management of an effective cognitive network team, and an exploration of the key processes involved are presented. Also described in this paper are the different roles that an individual cognitive node can adopt within the team, how a cognitive network team can benefit from the rewards of successful teamwork, and how inevitable change in membership and network topology can be handled. Finally, a relevant example scenario is outlined in order to suggest a suitable context for these principles.
