Agenda Item Description
Agenda 1.8 This agenda item relates to continuing the development of the regulatory framework for High Altitude Platform Stations (HAPS). Firstly in the bands 47.2 - 47.5 and 47.9 - 48.2 GHz: i) to encourage administrations to facilitate coordination between HAPS systems and co-primary satellite services, provisionally using Article 9 as a basis for procedures; ii) to study power limits for HAPS ground stations to facilitate sharing with space station receivers; iii) to study the regulatory provisions that might be needed to address the issue of a HAPS deployment in one administration effecting another; iv) other issues relating to sharing with radio astronomy and GSO FSS; Secondly in the bands 27.5 - 28.35 (HAPS to ground) and 31 - 31.3 (ground to HAPS) GHz, where HAPS shall not cause harmful interference to, nor claim protection from stations of other services: v) to conduct studies including sharing with fixed service to identify a suitable and preferably common 300 MHz of the 27.5 - 28.35 GHz; vi) to develop the necessary Recommendations on technical sharing criteria or HAPS system design conditions that are necessary to ensure HAPs can operate successfully on a non-harmful interference, non protected basis; vii) studies of the interference criteria and methodology for evaluating interference between HAPS downlinks and GSO FSS Uplinks; viii) to study the regulatory provisions that might be needed to address the issue of a HAPS deployment in one adminstration effecting another; ix) studies relating to mitigation techniques for HAPS sharing with the fixed service;
Agenda 1.20 This agenda item refers to compatibility between the EESS (passive) service and active services with allocations in adjacent or nearby bands. ITU-R Recommendation SM 1633 undertook a band by band survey of compatibility between passive and active services in adjacent bands. However this Recommendation did not cover all service + band pairs, and so further work is required: i) The Resolution identifies 7 band and service combinations for further study, involving frequencies between 1 400 MHz and 50.4 GHz, and the fixed, mobile, fixed satellite, and radiolocation services. ii) In addition work is required to consider the impact of implementing the values in Rec. 1633 on the fixed service (excluding HAPS) in Regions 2 and 3 in bands around 30 GHz and 50 GHz.
Resolution 229 [COM5/16] This resolution refers to the use of the bands between 5 150 and 5 725 by wireless access networks including radio local area networks. A number of changes in allocations were made in this 5 GHz band during WRC-03, for example additional allocations for the mobile service, and upgrades for other services such as radiolocation. This resolution defines regulations to facilitate use of this band by the various services allocated. It also calls upon further work: i) on the regulatory mechanisms and further mitigation techniques to avoid incompatibilities caused by the aggregate interference from large numbers of WAS devices into non-GSO FSS uplinks in the 5 150 - 5 250 MHz band; ii) on mitigation techniques to protect EESS from stations in the mobile service iii) on test methods and procedures for the implementation of dynamic frequency selection
