Satellite Earth Stations and Systems (SES); Harmonised Standard for Mobile Earth Stations (MES) of Geostationary mobile satellite systems, including handheld earth stations, for Satellite Personal Communications Networks (S-PCN) under the Mobile Satellite Service (MSS), operating in the 1,5 GHz and 1,6 GHz frequency bands covering the essential requirements of article 3.2 of the Directive 2014/53/EU
|Publication Date:||1 November 2016|
The present document applies to S-PCN MES for Geostationary mobile satellite systems with an EIRP less than or equal to 15 dBW.
The present document sets out the minimum performance requirements and technical characteristics of Mobile Earth Stations (MES) with both transmit and receive capabilities for operation in a Satellite Personal Communication Network (S-PCN) in any combination of all or any part of the Mobile Satellite Service (MSS) frequency bands sub-band 1 and sub-band 2 defined in table 1.
These MESs are controlled and monitored by a Network Control Facility (NCF). The NCF is outside the scope of the present document.
An S-PCN MES may be handheld, portable, vehicle-mounted, host connected, semi-fixed or fixed equipment, or may be an element in a multimode terminal; it may consist of a number of modules with associated connections and user interface, or may be a self-contained single unit.
If the MES is an element in a multimode terminal, unless otherwise stated in the present document, its requirements apply only to the S-PCN MES element of the terminal operating in the MSS frequency band given in table 1.
The present document is intended to cover the provisions of Directive 2014/53/EU [i.5] (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". 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 Radio Equipment Directive (RED) [i.5] may apply to equipment within the scope of the present document.
