On behalf of the International Consortium for Telemetry Spectrum, please find here the latest ICTS Bulletin.

The European Space Agency (ESA) is proposing to the European Conference of Postal and Telecommunications Administrations (CEPT) an agenda item for WRC-31; namely, consideration of possible new primary allocations to the RNSS (space to Earth).

Specifically, the proposal looks to consider, based on the result of studies, a new global primary allocation to the Radio Navigation Satellite Service (space to Earth) in the frequency bands 5030-5150 and 5150-5250 MHz.

At this point, ESA is seeking CEPT support for its proposal. In that regard, ESA has also developed the required elements for the update of the draft CEPT Brief on WRC-23 Agenda Item 10 to support this proposal.

This proposal would affect the global harmonized Aerospace Mobile Telemetry AMT Band (5091-5150 MHz) and ITU Region 1 AMT band (5150-5250 MHz).

ICTS recommends international and European telemetry practitioners and vendors advise their national administrations of this proposal and the potential negative impact to scientific and flight test telemetry in the 5 GHz bands.

The ICTS will continue to monitor and provide updates to this potential threat on the ICTS website: www.telemetryspectrum.org.

Please forward this Bulletin to telemetry peers within your network, who might no be in the distribution list of this email.
