New ECC Report on Spectrum Solutions for UAS (excluding MFCN UAS)

FM 59 is tasked with the drafting of a new ECC Report aimed at assessing the feasibility of spectrum solutions for the operational needs for the commercial and governmental[1] use of UAS and establishing the relevant technical conditions.



[1] Governmental use does not address military usage (which is considered as a national matter).

Scope

This work item concerns the definition of a reliable spectrum framework and the assessment of feasibility with the primary focus on the following bands, whilst ensuring compatibility with radio services and incumbent systems:

  • ·       The commercial use of command and control systems by UAS in the 1900-1920 MHz and 5000-5010 MHz bands.
  • ·       The governmental use of command and control as well as payload systems by UAS in the 1880-1900 MHz and 1900-1920 MHz bands.

Other bands may also be considered depending on the progress of work.

The UAS to be studied fall in the “Open” and “Specific” categories as identified in ECC Report 268. 5000-5010 MHz could be used by “Specific ” category UAS which do not require the use of specified aeronautical solutions for CC.
