ICAO Radio Spectrum SeminarMID Office, Cairo, 4 6 June 20061 RADIO SPECTRUM MANAGEMENT Prepared by Torsten JACOB ANB/CNS Slide 2 ICAO Radio Spectrum SeminarMID Office, Cairo, 4 6 June 20062 Introduction Aircraft operation would neither be safe nor be capable of meeting the global demand for rapid and cost-effective transport without aeronautical radio services. Radio spectrum is a scarce natural resource with finite capacity limits and constantly increasing demands. Radio frequency spectrum congestion imposes the need for an efficient and effective spectrum and frequency management system. Slide 3 ICAO Radio Spectrum SeminarMID Office, Cairo, 4 6 June 20063 Introduction Slide 4 ICAO Radio Spectrum SeminarMID Office, Cairo, 4 6 June 20064 Spectrum and Frequency Management Spectrum management is the combination of administrative and technical procedures necessary to ensure the interference-free and efficient operation of radio services (e.g. Radionavigation). Frequency management deals with the assignment of frequencies to transmitting and/or receiving stations (e.g. airborne radio station). Slide 5 ICAO Radio Spectrum SeminarMID Office, Cairo, 4 6 June 20065 Frequency bands Frequency bands for aeronautical radio services: Slide 6 ICAO Radio Spectrum SeminarMID Office, Cairo, 4 6 June 20066 ITU The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) is the specialized agency of the United Nations for telecommunications matters where international agreements are made on the use of the radio frequency spectrum ITU Radio Regulations provide a basis for the regulation of radio frequency spectrum between 9 kHz and 275 GHz Slide 7 ICAO Radio Spectrum SeminarMID Office, Cairo, 4 6 June 20067 ICAO Was created in 1944 to promote the safe and orderly development of civil aviation in the world Specialized agency of the United Nations, sets international Standards and Regulations necessary for the safety, security, efficiency and regularity of air transport Slide 8 ICAO Radio Spectrum SeminarMID Office, Cairo, 4 6 June 20068 ICAOs role Analyze the agenda of ITU WRCs (World Radiocommunication Conferences) Develop an ICAO position Work with ITU and Regional Telecommunications Organizations (APT, CEPT, CITEL) Submit the approved position to States and ITU Participate in WRCs Slide 9 ICAO Radio Spectrum SeminarMID Office, Cairo, 4 6 June 20069 Main goals for WRC-07 Protect airborne weather radar and primary radar systems for short range applications including precision approach radar and airport surface detection equipment (ASDE) Protect high frequency (HF) bands used for aeronautical communications and to review regulatory and operational provisions for maritime mobile service identities (MMSIs) on search and rescue aircraft Introduce additional global spectrum allocations to accommodate new applications to satisfy future air traffic management (ATM) and potential aviation security requirements Slide 10 ICAO Radio Spectrum SeminarMID Office, Cairo, 4 6 June 200610 What is expected from States Assist in the development of the ICAO position Participate with aviation experts in the work of ITU and Regional Telecommunications Organizations Send aviation experts to WRCs (A32-13) Support ICAO position (Assembly Resolution A32-13) WRC-2007 Geneva Switzerland, October 2007 Next WRC 2010 Slide 11 ICAO Radio Spectrum SeminarMID Office, Cairo, 4 6 June 200611 Thank You Any questions?
