Service Rules and Procedures to Govern the Use of Aeronautical Mobile Satellite Service
In February 2005, the Commission through a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, sought comment on a regulatory framework for licensing the operation of Aeronautical Mobile Satellite Service (AMSS) systems to communicate with fixed-satellite service (FSS) networks in the Ku-Band. The goal of this proceeding is to promote more efficient use of the spectrum while protecting and providing regulatory certainty to the existing primary allocations including the FSS operators, and sharing spectrum with other secondary operations in these frequency bands including government space research stations (SRS).
