1 OFCOM IMPACT ON MCA OF CURRENT RADIO SPECTRUM INITIATIVES

2 safer lives, safer ships, cleaner seas Independent Audit of Public Sector Spectrum Holdings Commissioned by HM Treasury Commissioned by HM Treasury Major objective – allow sharing or change of current spectrum allocations Major objective – allow sharing or change of current spectrum allocations Includes MOD, CAA, MCA Includes MOD, CAA, MCA Review up to 15 GHz Review up to 15 GHz Concentrates on 2.7 – 3.4 GHz Concentrates on 2.7 – 3.4 GHz Major analysis - MOD and CAA holdings Major analysis - MOD and CAA holdings

3 safer lives, safer ships, cleaner seas IMPACTS ON MCA- RECOMMENDATIONS Agree a specification for band-sharing as a prerequisite to trials between radar and communication systems Agree a specification for band-sharing as a prerequisite to trials between radar and communication systems Contribute to a new UK radar group under the UK Spectrum Strategy Group to introduce Administrative Incentive Pricing to shore based maritime radar (VTS), Coastal station radio and DGPS Contribute to a new UK radar group under the UK Spectrum Strategy Group to introduce Administrative Incentive Pricing to shore based maritime radar (VTS), Coastal station radio and DGPS Consider the application of Recognised Spectrum Access to maritime ground based systems Consider the application of Recognised Spectrum Access to maritime ground based systems

4 safer lives, safer ships, cleaner seas Examine the possibility of additional sharing in the 3 and 9 GHz bands with MOD/CAA Examine the possibility of additional sharing in the 3 and 9 GHz bands with MOD/CAA With OFCOM - review international applications in the VHF bands with a view of ascertaining the feasibility of promoting simplex use of duplex channels and/or conversion to 12.5 kHz channels With OFCOM - review international applications in the VHF bands with a view of ascertaining the feasibility of promoting simplex use of duplex channels and/or conversion to 12.5 kHz channels Engage in the International discussions on increased spectrum efficiency (ITU JRG 1A- 1C-8B – radar) Engage in the International discussions on increased spectrum efficiency (ITU JRG 1A- 1C-8B – radar) Consider raising the sharing issues at WRC- 07 Consider raising the sharing issues at WRC- 07

5 safer lives, safer ships, cleaner seas CAVE REPORT Web site – Web site – The site contains the report, two supporting reports on band-sharing and a future demand study The site contains the report, two supporting reports on band-sharing and a future demand study Time scales – Government reaction to the report available in March 2006 Time scales – Government reaction to the report available in March 2006 The report lacks clarity with regard to the littoral interface The report lacks clarity with regard to the littoral interface

6 safer lives, safer ships, cleaner seas Agrees with all Cave recommendations! Agrees with all Cave recommendations! Provides an Action Plan Provides an Action Plan MCA/MOD/CAA invited to comment before publication MCA/MOD/CAA invited to comment before publication GOVERNMENT RESPONSE TO CAVE

7 safer lives, safer ships, cleaner seas End 2006 – Agreed methodology and criteria for band-sharing trials –between 2.7 and 3.4 GHz and 9 GHz band End 2006 – Agreed methodology and criteria for band-sharing trials –between 2.7 and 3.4 GHz and 9 GHz band End 2007 – Spending and resource provisions agreed through CSR 2007 End 2007 – Spending and resource provisions agreed through CSR 2007 End 2009 – Determine UK position for the ITU WRC-10 with regard to band- sharing in radar bands End 2009 – Determine UK position for the ITU WRC-10 with regard to band- sharing in radar bands ACTION PLAN

8 safer lives, safer ships, cleaner seas ACTION PLAN (contd) MCA will be required to introduce Administrative Incentive Pricing (AIP) to coastal radio, coastal radar (VTS) and DGPS – over the next 3 to 4 years MCA will be required to introduce Administrative Incentive Pricing (AIP) to coastal radio, coastal radar (VTS) and DGPS – over the next 3 to 4 years Impact of maritime services to be assessed following introduction of Recognised Spectrum Access Impact of maritime services to be assessed following introduction of Recognised Spectrum Access

9 safer lives, safer ships, cleaner seas BANDSHARING In advance of agreed Protection criteria – OFCOM are conducting preliminary Bandsharing trials In advance of agreed Protection criteria – OFCOM are conducting preliminary Bandsharing trials The derivation of these criteria is a complex task and requires significant additional resources The derivation of these criteria is a complex task and requires significant additional resources Essential that MCA/CAA/MOD co- operate closely on the creation of the criteria and the conditions of the trials Essential that MCA/CAA/MOD co- operate closely on the creation of the criteria and the conditions of the trials

10 safer lives, safer ships, cleaner seas BANDSHARING (contd) New Bandsharing Groups tasks to oversee the direction of the OFCOM band-sharing trials New Bandsharing Groups tasks to oversee the direction of the OFCOM band-sharing trials Also necessary to clarify its Terms Of Reference and its relationship with another Government Committee dealing with spectrum matters for emergency services- Police/Fire/Ambulance Also necessary to clarify its Terms Of Reference and its relationship with another Government Committee dealing with spectrum matters for emergency services- Police/Fire/Ambulance

11 safer lives, safer ships, cleaner seas RELATED MATERS Administrative Incentive Pricing (AIP) Administrative Incentive Pricing (AIP) Recognised Spectrum Access (RSA) Recognised Spectrum Access (RSA) Spectrum User Rights (SUR) Spectrum User Rights (SUR) The relationship between the above is essential and needs to be clarified The relationship between the above is essential and needs to be clarified
