Project Title:

Handbook of Frequency Allocations and Spectrum Protection for Scientific Uses: Second Edition
PIN: DEPS-BPA-14-01        

Major Unit:

Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences

Sub Unit: Board on Physics & Astronomy DEPS

RSO: Lang, David

Subject/Focus Area: Earth Sciences; Math, Chemistry, and Physics; Policy for Science and Technology; Space and Aeronautics

Project Scope
An ad hoc committee under the auspices of the National Research Council will prepare the second edition of the 2007 NRC report, "Handbook of Frequency Allocations and Spectrum Protection for Scientific Uses." The report will describe the radio frequency bands used by the scientific services, primarily the passive radio astronomy and Earth remote-sensing services. The report will include relevant regulatory information and a discussion of the scientific use of frequency bands. It will serve as a reference or handbook, guiding spectrum managers and spectrum regulatory bodies on science issues, serving as a resource to scientists on spectrum regulation for research, and providing information to other spectrum users on the concerns of the scientific users of the spectrum.  It will not contain any recommendations.

Project Duration: 12 months
