ETSI - EN 302 340
Satellite Earth Stations and Systems (SES); Harmonised Standard for satellite Earth Stations on board Vessels (ESVs) operating in the 11/12/14 GHz frequency bands allocated to the Fixed Satellite Service (FSS) covering the essential requirements of article 3.2 of the Directive 2014/53/EU
|Publication Date:||1 May 2016|
The present document applies to Earth Stations located on board Vessels (ESVs) which have the following characteristics:
• The ESV is comprised of all the equipment, electrical and mechanical, from the antenna itself to the interface with other communications equipment on board (usually referred to as the terrestrial interface).
• The ESV transmits in the frequency range from 14,00 GHz to 14,50 GHz allocated to the Fixed Satellite Services (FSS) (earth-to-space).
• The ESV receives in one or more frequencies within the range from 10,70 GHz to 12,75 GHz in the bands allocated to the Fixed Satellite Services (FSS) (space-to-earth), depending on the ITU Region where the ESV is located.
• The ESV uses linear polarization.
• The ESV operates through a geostationary satellite at least 2° to 3° away from any other geostationary satellite operating in the same frequency band and covering the same area.
NOTE 1: The satellite spacing is mainly equal to 3° in ITU Regions 1 and 3 and 2° in ITU Region 2. The ESV transmits at elevations greater or equal to the minimum elevation angle declared by the applicant.
• The ESV antenna diameter is not smaller than 0,6 m.
NOTE 2: Operation within 125 km of non-CEPT countries with antenna diameter smaller than 1,2 m may be subject to specific agreement with concerned administrations as stated in ITU-R Resolution 902 (WRC-03).
• The ESV is designed for transmission and reception of radio-communications
• The ESV is usually designed for unattended operation.
• The ESV is operating as part of a satellite network (e.g. star, mesh or point-to-point) used for the distribution and/or exchange of information between users.
• The ESV is controlled and monitored by a Network Control Facility (NCF). The NCF is outside the scope of the present document.
The present document applies to the ESV with its ancillary equipment and its various telecommunication ports, and when operated within the boundary limits of the operational environmental profile declared by the applicant and when installed as required by the applicant by declaration or in the user documentation.
The present document is intended to cover the provisions of Directive 2014/53/EU  (RE Directive) article 3.2, which states that "… radio equipment shall be so constructed that it both effectively uses and supports the efficient use of radio spectrum in order to avoid harmful interference".
The present document incorporates the technical limitations listed in annex 2 of ITU-R Resolution 902 (WRC-03) [i.2].
NOTE 3: According to ITU-R Resolution 902 (WRC-03), any transmission from ESVs within the 125 km minimum distance of each country where the ESV transmit frequency band is used by the Fixed Service will be subject to the prior agreement of the concerned administration(s) or to the relevant ECC Decision and may specify additional operational requirements.
In addition to the present document, other ENs that specify technical requirements in respect of essential requirements under other parts of article 3 of the Directive 2014/53  (RE Directive) may apply to equipment within the scope of the present document.
