  • 1. Air Traffic Management Maximising efficiency in the transport sector Airports Space Telecoms Middle East Spectrum Conference Dubai, 30th March 2011 Maritime Rail www.askhelios.com
  • 2. How much spectrum do transport users have? Aviation Maritime Rail Road Mobile Others 25.6% 49.1% 3.7% 0.3% 0.0% 21.3% Share of spectrum in range 300 to 3000 MHz (excludes exclusive military use) Source: Helios 1 Middle East Spectrum Conference – 30th March 2011
  • 3. The pattern continues at higher frequencies… Aviation Maritime Rail Road Mobile Others 22.1% 52.1% 8.1% 0.2% 1.1% 16.5% Share of spectrum in range 300 to 6000 MHz (excludes exclusive military use) Source: Helios 2 Middle East Spectrum Conference – 30th March 2011
  • 4. The simple facts • Demand for spectrum is ever increasing • The amount of spectrum available is fixed • Transport users need spectrum for connectivity • They are inherently mobile • Many applications are safety related • They currently ‘occupy’ around a third of the spectrum • Transport users are also feeling the squeeze • New applications (eg intelligent transport) require more spectrum • Some users already share spectrum (eg aircraft and maritime radars) 3 Middle East Spectrum Conference – 30th March 2011
  • 5. Time to share? • Land based transport could share infrastructure • cars and trains • Complementary transport could share spectrum Boats Cars Trains • boats and cars • boats and trains • could there be problems at ports and harbours? • Are definitions such as ‘maritime’ and ‘aeronautical’ still useful? Middle East Spectrum Conference – 30th March 2011
  • 6. Maximising efficiency? • Ensure existing systems are spectrally efficient • Some systems have changed little over 60 years • New systems should adopt best practise • Design and development historically slow in safety cultures, outdating solutions before they are implemented • Allow commercial competition in service innovation • International committees rarely agree! • USA has introduced ‘local’ systems • EU, ME, Asia could do the same • Consider shift towards greater sharing between users • Shared infrastructure and service provision • Shared spectrum Middle East Spectrum Conference – 30th March 2011
