World radio conference decisions so far

Spectrum needed for the operation of short-range high-resolution automotive radar has been allocated in the 79 GHz frequency band at the World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC-15), currently meeting in Geneva from 2 to 27 November. The allocation of the 79 GHz frequency band provides a globally harmonised regulatory framework for automotive radar to prevent collisions, which will improve vehicular safety and reduce traffic accidents. And following the loss of Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 in March 2014, the frequency band 1087.7-1092.3 MHz has been allocated to the aeronautical mobile-satellite service (Earth-to-space) for reception by space stations of Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) emissions from aircraft transmitters. The band is currently used for the transmission of ADS-B signals from aircraft to terrestrial stations within line-of-sight. And an Israeli-Palestinian agreement has been reached on the assignment of radio frequencies to facilitate cellular phone operations.
