WRC 2019 Agenda Item Details

Agenda Item: Agenda Item 7
Resolution(s): Resolution 86 (Rev. WRC-07)
Description of work:

This agenda item relates to consideration of possible changes, and other options, in response to Resolution 86 (Rev. Marrakesh, 2002) of the Plenipotentiary Conference, an advance publication, coordination, notification and recording procedures for frequency assignments pertaining to satellite networks, in accordance with Resolution 86 (Rev.WRC-07), in order to facilitate rational, efficient and economical use of radio frequencies and any associated orbits, including the geostationary-satellite orbit.

In particular this relates to:

  1. proposals which deal with deficiencies and improvements in the advance publication, coordination, notification and recording procedures in the Radio Regulations for space services
  2. ensuring these procedures and related appendices, reflect the latest technologies, as far as possible.
Comments: This topic keeps returning to WRCs though the years as new suggestions keep coming on ways to improve the satellite coordination process. While often associated with GSO satellite systems, there are also ongoing discussions about non-GSO systems, such as what counts as bringing into use (BIU) a non-GSO system and what would count as a modification that results in a change in associated filing date.
Lead Working Party(s):
Involved Working Parties:
How Visualyse products can help: Visualyse Professional and GSO can be used to analyse sharing between space services and identify alternative methods that could be used to facilitate regulatory procedures. For example, recent WRCs have changed the coordination triggers in Appendix 5 including changing the coordination arc and introduction of PFD thresholds. These can be assessed using Visualyse Professional and alternative coordination triggers set in Visualyse GSO and the impact on the coordination processed analysed.
How Transfinite consultants can help: We have a good understanding of the regulatory processes involved in space services and the various methods used to trigger coordination and undertake detailed coordination. We also have an excellent understanding of ITU databases such as the SRS/IFIC and GIMS and how the data in these databases can be used for coordination trigger and detailed coordination. We can use in-house tools Visualyse Professional and Visualyse GSO to assess and develop alternative regulatory procedures.
