Harmonized under:
  • Directive 2014/53/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 16 April 2014 on the harmonisation of the laws of the Member States relating to the making available on the market of radio equipment and repealing Directive 1999/5/EC Text with EEA relevance

Harmonized standards:


The present document applies to Mobile Earth Station (MES) radio equipment which have the following characteristics:
• these MES have both transmit and receive capabilities and operate in a Satellite-Personal Communications
Network (S-PCN). An S-PCN MES may be a handheld, portable, vehicle-mounted, host connected, semi-fixed
or fixed equipment, or may be an element in a multi-mode 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 multi-mode terminal, unless otherwise stated in the present document, its
requirements apply only to the S-PCN MES element of the terminal;
• these MES are capable in operating in all or part of the frequency bands shown in table 1.
Table 1: Mobile Satellite Service frequency bands
MES MSS frequency bands
Transmit 1 610 MHz to 1 626,5 MHz
Receive 1 613,8 MHz to 1 626,5 MHz
Receive 2 483,5 MHz to 2 500,0 MHz
The present document is intended to cover the provisions of Directive 2014/53/EU [10] (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 Directive 2014/53/EU [10] may apply to equipment within the scope of the present
NOTE 1: A list of such ENs is included on the ETSI web site.
NOTE 2: These LMESs are controlled and monitored by a Network Control Facility (NCF). The NCF is outside the
scope of the present document.
