Sharing Defence Managed Spectrum - MOD

  1. 1. Information Systems and Services Sharing Defence Managed Spectrum TechUK Update Lisa Roper Defence Spectrum Release and Sharing Hd
  2. 2. Contents Update • Public Sector Spectrum Release Target • Bands of Interest Feasibility Studies • Paper Modelling • Challenges Innovation Next six months
  3. 3. Update Public Sector Spectrum Release Target • Government target to make 500 MHz available by 2020, 750 MHz by 2022 • MOD manages ~2/3 of all public sector spectrum (and shares a lot of the rest) • MOD has currently contributed a significant amount Bands of interest • 406.2 – 430 MHz • 1427 – 1452 MHz • 2300 – 2350 MHz • 4800 – 4900 MHz • 5725 – 5850 MHz • 7900 – 8400 MHz
  4. 4. Feasibility Studies ‘Paper Modelling’ undertaken on significant capabilities in 2.3GHz and 1.4GHz bands • Proof of modelling • Level of protection required Challenges • Proving the modelling • Impact of loss of capability • Justification of access • Costs of remediation
  5. 5. Paper Modelling Proof of modelling Level of protection required • Requires fixed, defined operating areas (or “no go” areas) • Large areas with intermittent airborne use • Identified areas are continually protected
  6. 6. Challenges Proving the modelling • Much of MOD’s use is occasional e.g. flight over an area, or a specific training exercise or trial • Estimates and historical information can give an indication but cannot ensure protection is given when needed • Availability requirements Impact of loss of capability • Full – no capability • Partial – lower quality/bandwidth, reduced power mode, reduced freedom, restrictions/agreements
  7. 7. Justifications for access to certain spectrum • Building penetration, operating range, climate of deployment, international collaboration, etc. Costs • To retune within band • To retune to alternative band • To replace capability with alternative Challenges cont’d
  8. 8. Innovation Our innovation project is looking at dynamic ways to share spectrum, not specifically through databases such as TV Whitespace, but sensing, time, power and geographical enablers We are not looking for specific technologies but innovative approaches which could be replicated in Defence to make more efficient use of the spectrum we manage
  9. 9. Innovation cont’d
  10. 10. Next Six Months Engagement with key stakeholders • Defence capability owners • Defence contractors • Outside industry • Academia Through • Open forum – Tomorrow in MOD Main Building • Workshops – technical/non-technical • Face to Face
