Space Object Licensing, Frequency allotment and Filing

It is important to understand that every space object launched must be registered.

The International Telecommunications Union governs the allocation and assignment of radio frequency spectrum to enable communication to and from satellites, and the allocation of orbital positions for satellites. It also regulates the related frequencies for terrestrial use of communications.

In the UK, Ofcom’s Procedures for the Management of Satellite Filings must also be met.

The system is based on the “fair and equitable” use of the finite space closely surrounding Earth, and the need for satellites not to interfere with each other physically.

It is vital that the registration process is started at the right time since that process must coincide with the overall mission schedule.
