The increasing demands being placed on the spectrum require careful management to ensure that this valuable resource remains sustainable and capable of supporting ATM evolution in the coming years.
EUROCONTROL has a unique position in the ATM environment: we interface with all our stakeholders to ensure that the 1030/1090 MHz spectrum is ‘future-proofed’. We also do this through our involvement with international standardisation bodies, international organisations and system manufacturers.
The 1030/1090MHz Monitoring Project deploys a range of tools in carrying out its mandate. These tools include ground-monitoring systems, an airborne monitoring system, an in-depth off-line analysis tool and an RF model to simulate the impact of possible future changes.
