ITU Members agree to new milestones for non-geostationary satellite deployment

By ITU News

Delegates representing ITU Member States have agreed at the World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC-19) in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, to adopt an innovative new milestone-based approach for the deployment of non-geostationary satellite (NGSO) systems in specific radio-frequency bands and services.

The agreement reached at WRC-19 establishes regulatory procedures for the deployment of NGSOs, including mega-constellations in low-Earth orbit.

Under the newly adopted regulatory regime, these systems will have to deploy 10% of their constellation within 2 years after the end of the current regulatory period for bringing into use, 50% within 5 years and complete the deployment within 7 years.

The milestone-based approach will provide a regulatory mechanism to help ensure that the Master International Frequency Register reasonably reflects the actual deployment of such NGSO satellite systems in specific radio-frequency bands and services.
