Unmanned aircraft systems: Traffic management systems and their spectrum requirements
Nov 25, 2020
by Dianne Northfield

The proliferation of a diverse range of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), particularly those operating at low-altitude, is challenging traditional air traffic management systems where traditional airspace classifications and rules of flight do not map to drone operations. Read more...

Identification of non-aviation spectrum for unmanned aircraft systems
Nov 25, 2020
by Dianne Northfield

Spectrum allocated for satellite services and/or mobile broadband are increasingly being considered for UAS Read more...

Identification of protected aviation spectrum for unmanned aircraft systems
Nov 25, 2020
by Dianne Northfield

Several international and national bodies are working to provide protected aviation spectrum for use by safety critical applications. Read more...

An introduction to low- to medium-altitude unmanned aircraft systems
Nov 25, 2020
by Dianne Northfield

Flying at very low-altitude, small drone operations have generally relied on the use of unlicensed, unprotected spectrum resources. This framework is neither appropriate nor sustainable for the burgeoning low- to medium-altitude Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) sector. Read more...

An introduction to High-Altitude Platform Station systems
Oct 22, 2020
by Dianne Northfield

High-Altitude Platform Stations, or HAPS, are now considered as a viable and effective connectivity solution; a new layer or architecture – between terrestrial and satellite networks – to deliver commercial communications services. Read more...

Spectrum for High-Altitude Platform Stations
Oct 22, 2020
by Dianne Northfield

After decades of research and experimentation, High-Altitude Platform Stations, or HAPS, systems have matured as a viable new connectivity solution and HAPS providers are now competing with terrestrial and satellite operations for access to spectrum. Read more...

Traffic and interference management in the stratosphere
Oct 22, 2020
by Dianne Northfield

High-Altitude Platform Station, or HAPS, systems represent a new layer – between terrestrial and satellite networks – to deliver commercial connectivity solutions. Management of the coexistence of multiple different platforms in the stratosphere is a cutting-edge topic that is only contemplated as a reality in recent times. Read more...

Dossiers

by PolicyTracker

The Dossiers section of our Research Service is a guide to current high-profile policy debates. It provides an overview of each subject, tracing back its roots, examining the different sectoral perspectives and providing Trackers to assess progress. Our current Dossiers are: Spectrum auctions WRC-23 The changing dynamics of the mobile/satellite… Read more...
