Harmonised spectrum regulatory conditions for “aerial UEs” in the suitable MFCN bands ensure visibility for UAs standardisation, market development while ensuring confidence of all spectrum users,

In accordance with ECC Report 309, the scope of this ECC Decision refers to aerial UEs installed on UAs and manned aircraft. This report covers only non AAS MFCN usage (except in 3.4-3.8 GHz).

This ECC framework will be also the relevant basis to trigger additional standardisation activities in ETSI on “out of band emission limits”, where appropriate and to enable practical implementation of “no fly zone”, at national level where needed.
