UK Space Spectrum Strategy Consultation

Ofcom are consulting on their proposed Space Spectrum Strategy which covers the use of spectrum by the satellite and space science (including earth observation) sectors

We also noted in the CFI (Call For Input) that the review does not cover amateur use of satellites. This remains the case, however we remain interested in views of the amateur satellite community where relevant.
— Ofcom

The satellite and space science sectors already deliver important benefits to UK citizens and consumers, such as broadcast TV, global positioning, communications to ships and aircraft, satellite imagery and information about the climate. There is potential for greater benefits in the future and Ofcom want to make sure we are focusing our efforts on the issues that will unlock the biggest benefits.

Ofcom are inviting stakeholders views on their analysis and proposed priorities. Once confirmed, the strategy will shape the prioritisation of work in these sectors over the coming years.

Alongside this document, Ofcom are publishing a range of interactive data on use of spectrum by the satellite and space science sectors.

Responses must be made by 10th May 2016.
