ITU/WMO Seminar on: Use of Radio Spectrum for Meteorology: Weather, Water and Climate Monitoring and Prediction Geneva, 16-18 September 2009. ITU Radiocommunication Standardization Activities. Kevin HUGHES Chief of ITU-R Study Group Department E-mail: [email protected] Presentation. - PowerPoint PPT Presentation
  • Objectives of ITU-R Study GroupsStructure of Study GroupsRadiocommunication AssemblyScope of Study GroupsSome key areas of standardizationITU-R Recommendations, Reports and HandbooksPresentation

  • ensure the rational, equitable, efficient and economical use of the radio-frequency spectrum by all radiocommunication services, including those using the geostationary-satellite or other satellite orbits,

    carry out studies without limit of frequency range and adopting Recommendations on radiocommunication matters.

    (ref. Article 12 of Constitution)Role of ITU-R

  • Role of ITU-RRole conducted through (inter alia):

    World (and Regional) Radiocommunication ConferencesApproval of Recommendations by Member States

    Technical studies are requiredwhich are conducted in Study Groups

  • Principal Tasks of ITU-R Study GroupsDevelop technical bases for WRCs (and RRCs)Develop Recommendationse.g. CPM process for WRCsInternational voluntary Standards on:spectrum management, satellite orbits, frequency sharingsystem characteristics and operationITU-R represents: International focal point for the standardization of wireless systemsCompile Reports and Handbooks

  • Current key priorities in ITU-R Standardizationinclude:Emergency communicationsEnvironmental monitoring

  • EmergencyCommunicationsPrediction and Detection: Meteorological services (Met-Aids, Met-Sat); Earth Exploration Satellite ServiceAlerting: Amateur service; Broadcasting services (terrestrial and satellite); fixed services (terrestrial and satellite); Mobile services (land, satellite, maritime)Damage assessment and Relief: Amateur service; Broadcasting services (terrestrial and satellite); fixed services (terrestrial and satellite); Mobile services (land, satellite, maritime); Earth Exploration Satellite ServiceRegulatory roleStandardization role

  • EmergencyCommunicationsDatabases relating to safety of life and rescue operationsavailable frequencies for use in emergency situations and guidelines on the management of radiocommunications (Res 647 (WRC-07), Res ITU-R 53)Maritime mobile Access and retrieval System (MARS)Regionally Harmonized Frequency Bands for Public Protection and Disaster Reliefpreferred frequency bands listed in Res 646 (WRC-03)Study Group activitiesspectrum management guidelines Recommendations, Reports, Handbooks providing technical basis for development and operation of the radiocommunication services used in the various phases of emergency and disaster situations

  • Climate changeITU-Rs standardization role on monitoring and mitigating the effects of climate change is very closely linked with that on Emergency CommunicationsThrough its responsibility for international spectrum management, ITU-R provides interference-free spectrum and satellite orbits for climate monitoringCooperates with UN agencies (e.g. WMO) and international and national organizations involved with climate change

  • Climate changeStudy Groups develop Recommendations, Reports and Handbooks onoperation of radio systems for environmental monitoring, including climate change; e.g. ITU/WMO Handbook on Use of Radio spectrum for meteorology: weather, water and climate monitoring and predictionfacilitating the introduction and operation of low-energy systems; e.g. analogue to digital broadcastingSatellite-based remote sensors (passive and active) are main tools for obtaining environmental data for climate monitoringSystems belonging toEarth exploration satellite serviceMeteorological-satellite serviceMeteorological aids serviceform backbone of the WMO Global Climate Observing System
