Saudi Arabia’s Communications, Space and Technology Commission (CST) has launched a consultation for its upcoming Space Radiocommunication Spectrum Outlook. As part of its efforts to modernize the country’s regulatory framework for satellite and space services, the CST is inviting industry stakeholders to provide feedback and suggestions to enhance its spectrum management approach.
The consultation document outlines both current and future actions to ensure effective licensing and allocation of radio spectrum for space radiocommunication services. By gathering insights from the industry, the CST aims to align its plans with the needs of the space sector.
The Space Radiocommunication Spectrum Outlook addresses the growing demand for spectrum and considers global trends in satellite applications, including IoT, hybrid solutions, D2D applications, space debris management, and earth observation. The document also includes a section on funding space research and development and nurturing human capital.
The CST’s initiative reflects its commitment to harnessing the potential of spectrum as a valuable national resource to drive economic growth and social progress within Saudi Arabia. Stakeholders and interested parties are encouraged to contribute their perspectives to shape the country’s space radiocommunication spectrum policies for the future.
