    The avaibility of frequencies - Revised edition (june 2017)

    Many basic aircraft, satellite and radar functions are provided by data transmission over the air waves. The frequency spectrum is divided up by usage to avoid interferences with the other airwave users (telecommunications, etc.).

    The frequency spectrum is a limited natural resource which is being depleted because of the sharp increase in demand as new applications come on stream. The electronic communications industry in particular is pushing for allocation for its high-speed mobile telecommunications networks.

    GIFAS represents the industry’s interests in its dealings with the stakeholders.

    The availability of frequency bands and the control of the regulatory framework are key issues that will shape GIFAS member company product and equipment launches.

    Frequency Commission publishes four documents to describe the sector (stakes, social weight and specifities of the sector) and explains sector evolution as per industry view and spectrum needs: frequencies for commercial and business aircraft; frequencies for radars; frequencies for satellite communication systems.
