Scope

This Technical Basis for Regulation (TBR) specifies the technical requirements that apply to Very Small Aperture Terminal (VSAT) for compliance with Articles 4.1 and 4.3 of the SES Directive [1]. The VSAT has the following characteristics: – the VSAT is operating in the following bands allocated to the Fixed Satellite Service (FSS), shared with other services, e.g. the Fixed Service (FS) and the Mobile Service (MS): – 5,85 GHz to 6,65 GHz (earth-to-space); – 3,40 GHz to 4,20 GHz (space-to-earth); – the VSAT uses linear or circular polarization; – the VSAT operates through a geostationary satellite at least 3° away from any other geostationary satellite operating in the same frequency band and covering the same area; – the VSAT antenna diameter does not exceed 7,3 m, or equivalent effective area; – the VSAT is either: – transmit-only VSAT: designed for transmission-only of radio-communications signals in the frequency band specified above; or – transmit-and-receive VSAT: designed for transmission-and-reception of radio-communications signals in the frequency band specified above; or – receive-only VSAT: designed for reception-only of radio-communications signals in the frequency band specified above;
