background on atc in l band
Background on ATC in L Band
  • L band is shared among multiple operators
    • Primarily Inmarsat and SkyTerra in United States
    • Current situation is that each uses small slices of interleaved spectrum that are not suitable for terrestrial systems
  • Inmarsat & MSV (now SkyTerra) entered into a Cooperation Agreement in December 2007 to rationalize spectrum between us in a way that would enable ATC
  • Harbinger has announced its intent to pursue ATC in the U.S. via acquisition of SkyTerra and Inmarsat
    • Harbinger has an agreement with SkyTerra but not Inmarsat

challenges for atc
Challenges for ATC
  • Capital, capital, capital
  • Gating criteria create complications compared to “clean” auctioned spectrum
    • Spectrum is shared between MSS & terrestrial
    • Integration requirement
  • What’s NOT a challenge:
    • Regulatory framework
    • Technical feasibility

opportunities for atc
Opportunities for ATC
  • While the freeze in capital markets will likely delay deployment of ATC in the near term, the longer term prospects are promising
    • Broadband applications will continue to suck up a lot of bandwidth
    • The “pipeline” for terrestrial spectrum is drying up
    • MSS has a unique ability to serve rural and remote underserved locations cost-effectively
    • National footprint is a huge advantage
    • Mobility and ubiquity will offer a comparative advantage

atc on the road
ATC on the road
  • Europe has allocated spectrum for MSS at S band
  • The European proceeding specifically contemplates Complementary Ground Component (CGC) at S band
  • European selection of S band operators will be finalized shortly
  • European member states are developing CGC regulatory frameworks
