ECC Recommendation , Rev. ECC Decision HIRF protection of aircraft from earth stations
To identify up to date aeronautical regulations defining the HIRF protection levels of aircraft that maintain aeronautical safety. To assist SE40 in its work on the revision of ECC Report 66.

To study consequently the implied modifications on  existing ECC Decisions dealing with exemption of individual licensing for C-, Ku-, Ka-band satellite terminals. To assist administrations using  the HIRF regulations and methodology established by airworthiness bodies for coordinated earth stations.   

Develop a new ECC Recommendation on “Guidance and method of calculating HIRF level from high e.i.r.p. fixed Earth Station located outside of the wedge shaped area of an airport or helipad”

ECC Report Assess the feasibility of M2M/IoT operation through satellite from a technical and regulatory point of view
Develop an ECC Report regarding the implementation of M2M/IoT operation via satellite including uplinks and downlinks to enhance terrestrial networks with satellite connectivity
S: 16-05-2017
T: 28-02-2020
Explore technical and frequency band opportunities for the introduction of M2M/IoT applications via satellite in order to extend terrestrial networks and create complementary services. The advantage of M2M/IoT via satellite is mainly to establish connectivity for areas having no or poor terrestrial coverage.

ECC Decision Earth stations in-motion installed on aircraft operating with FSS systems in the 12.75 -13.25 GHz band (Earth to space) 

Develop an ECC Decision on 'The harmonised use of frequencies, exemption from individual licensing and free circulation of earth stations in-motion installed on aircraft operating with GSO and NGSO FSS systems in the 12.75 -13.25 GHz band (Earth to space)

S: 14-05-2018
T: 27-03-2020

Regulatory measures to be  developed for the protection of current and future FS deployment, such as setting a minimum altitude, taking into account the results of WGSE studies (see Doc: FM(18)055).The regulatory measures for maintaining compatibility with Appendix 30B to be developed and if necessary, corresponding technical issues should be identified. Regulatory studies will take into account aggregate effects from NGSO and GSO operations. 

See also background in FM(18)105 Annex 7.

* Target dates are seen as the intended date for the final approval of the related deliverable by the responsible entity. Internal deadlines for project teams and dates for the start of Public Consultations can be reflected in the remarks column. In general this implies that the draft deliverable should be completed by the project team one WG meeting earlier for publication.
