The third interested party was Motorola, which was promoting its NGSO
In addition, these prior programs enable the use of cost-effective satellite manufacturing techniques and capitalize on prior supplier relationships for manufacturing low-cost NGSO systems.
LMCSS has experience in building low-cost buses for NGSO systems as well as extensive experience developing Ka-band system payloads, the "brains" of the satellite.
In July, the Federal Communications Commission proposed a domestic band plan for the 28 GHz band, or Ka band, that designated the same 500 MHz for NGSO
FSS systems such as Teledesic.
This First Report and Order confirms the sharing regime originally proposed by SkyBridge in 1997 by implementing a regulatory framework for the operation of NGSO FSS systems in the United States, including rules governing the sharing of spectrum with existing geostationary satellite and terrestrial systems.
With a clear regulatory framework in place, NGSO systems, such as SkyBridge, will be able to offer a new generation of satellite services to homes and businesses.
2) The demonstrated interference to NGSO FSS services; and 3) the international implications of the proposal in view of the spectrum sharing arrangements in the DBS bands agreed to by the U.
The NGSO FSS community is equally concerned over harmful interference from Northpoint, and that Northpoint's assurances of techniques to avoid interference are wholly unworkable.
Receiving live Astra and Hispasat programming signals via satellite with standard consumer equipment, SkyBridge demonstrated the absence of any perceptible impact on DBS viewers from NGSO operations under the WRC-97 power limits, as enshrined in the International Radio regulation.
There was broad agreement that, with suitable ground rules, NGSO systems can share spectrum with GSO and terrestrial systems.
At WRC-95, the 184 member nations of the International Telecommunications Union, an arm of the United Nations, adopted a resolution identifying the same frequencies contained in the FCC band plan for use by NGSO FSS systems such as the Teledesic Network.
The WRC-95 resolution made 400 MHz available for immediate use by these NGSO FSS systems.
