The Earth Exploration Satellite (discussed on the previous page) is used for the establishment of radiocommunication service
between Earth stations and one or more space stations, which may include links between space stations, in which information relating to the characteristics of the Earth and its natural phenomena is obtained from active or passive sensors on Earth satellites.
The event will highlight the management of scarce radio-frequency spectrum to provide new opportunities for radiocommunication services
, including those for maritime and aeronautical transport, as well as for scientific purposes related to the environment, meteorology and climatology, disaster prediction, mitigation and relief.
The meeting reached consensual viewpoints on the topics listed on the agenda of the meeting particularly items of the forthcoming meeting's agenda after reviewing the provision of frequency spectrum for broadband systems and using the 700 MHz frequency band for mobile services and in particular for international mobile services, as well as the provision of frequency spectrum for various land and coastal radiocommunication services
. It is worth noting that holding the meeting came in preparation for deliberations of the WRC-15, which is related to management of frequency spectrum, which is regulated by the ITU Radio Sector as this sector plays an important role in the socioeconomic development at countries of the region.
Fuelled by rapid technological developments in information and communication technologies (ICT) along with increasing convergence of radiocommunication services
in today's communication devices, there is an urgent need to ensure the best efficiencies in the use of spectrum, a finite resource.
In addition, there has been substantial growth in the use of frequency bands between 500MHz and 10GHz for a myriad of radiocommunication services
, which has further reduced the spectrum available for ENG.
The conference, which is expected to be attended by close to 2,000 participants representing both government and private interests, will consider possible frequency allocations and regulatory modifications to facilitate the use of frequency bands up to 275GHz by practically all radiocommunication services
