Harmonized standards:


The present document applies to Mobile Earth Station (MES) radio equipment which have the following characteristics:
• these MES operate in a non-geostationary orbit (NGSO) mobile-satellite system;
• these MES have both transmit and receive capabilities and operate in a Satellite-Personal Communications
Network (S-PCN). An S-PCN MES may be 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;
• these LMESs are controlled and monitored by a Network Control Facility (NCF). The NCF is outside the
scope of the present document;
• 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 operating in the MSS frequency bands
given in table 1;
• these MES are capable in operating in all or part of the frequency bands shown in table 1.
