Use of the 30/20 GHz band by multipurpose satellite systemsThe World Administrative Radio Conference (WARC) held in 1992 allocated the bands 19.7-20.2 GHz and 29.5-30.0 GHz to both the Mobile Satellite Service (MSS) and the Fixed Satellite Service (FSS) on a co-primary basis. An economic and flexible solution for the provision of both services is to place both payloads on one spacecraft. Some of the proposed applications of such a hybrid satellite network are described. It also examines the facility for spectrum sharing between the various applications and discusses the impact on coordination. It is concluded that the coordination process would not be more onerous than traditional FSS inter-satellite coordination.
