2 Content o Project o Background o Aims o Benefits o Update o Way Ahead o System o Aims o Concept

3 Eurocontrol Project Background o Project mandate from ECAC Ministers of Transport at MATSE/6 o Called on EUROCONTROL to address the need for strong spectrum and frequency management mechanism o EUROCONTROL issued TRS 090/02 in August 2002, for which an external company successfully bid

4 Eurocontrol Project Background (2) o What is Frequency management ? o Short term planning for new assignments or modified assignments o All Aviation systems (VHF, Navaids, radars codes etc..) o Long term planning o Strategic planning to anticipate frequency congestions o Verify (in)compatabilities of existing assignments with new requirements put forward by others adjacent states o Inter States Coordination (AFTN based to be replaced by internet), multicast messages o Regular review of frequency actual usage and parameters (coverage, sectors, FLs) o Ensuring Frequency usage transparency

6 Eurocontrol Project Benefits o Unique central data source o Vs distributed multiple sources today o Limit coordination between States (and maybe eliminated in long term) o Free of error data reference for planning o Immediate availability of updated information o Authorised users only, independent supervision o Basis for frequency short (freq management) to long term planning (strategy development) o Basis for frequency audit process at European level

7 Eurocontrol Project Aims o Scope o To identify and document user requirements o System Development o To develop a secure, centrally managed system that will enable efficient and accurate management of aeronautical frequencies, and provide a comprehensive information resource to facilitate spectrum management o Mechanism Support o To provide support in the development of new procedures as required to establish the new Spectrum and Frequency Management Mechanism

8 Eurocontrol Project Aims (2) o System Support o To provide technical system support as it is brought into operation

9 Eurocontrol Project Update o Nearly completed project o Prototype system on-line o Live operations ONLY after database population process start (in 2005) o Will include a critical data quality review o Coherence o Data quality and reliability o Operational aspects o Will start with VHF assignments (so called COM2 Table)

10 Eurocontrol System Main Aims o To provide one central database containing details of every frequency assignment in every aeronautical band as required o For Freq planners community o For spectrum managers o For other Users communities o As requested by States or international organisation and agreed by States o To provide web-based frequency co-ordination functionality with secure access restricted to authorised frequency managers o To ensure proposals contain agreed minimum information, and to apply integrity verification (CRC) o To provide download and synchronisation facilities o To provide export facilities in a format compatible with agreed planning tools (e.g. MANIF) and format (XML)

11 Eurocontrol System Main Aims (2) o To provide backup, restore, archiving and retrieval of data o To provide authorised Users with a set of queries that will give information in support of spectrum studies, technical analyses and usage monitoring o To provide all users with general information about aeronautical spectrum o To be the foundation of a regular European audit process
