ITU World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC2015) Approves Radio spectrum for Global Flight Tracking

  • To enables Earth-to-space reception of Automatic Dependent Surveilance-Broadcast (ADS-B) transmissions


By Innocent Mungy, Geneva, 11 November 2015 

Today, agreement was reached at the World Radiocommunication Conference in Geneva, Switzerland on the allocation of radio frequency spectrum for global flight tracking system in civil aviation. The system is expected to be in operation by 2017.
It was agreed that the frequency band 1087.7-1092.3 MHz to be allocated to the aeronautical mobile-satellite service (Earth-to-space) for reception by space stations of Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) emissions from aircraft transmitters.

The frequency band 1087.7-1092.3 MHz is currently being utilized for the transmission of ADS-B signals from aircraft to terrestrial stations within line-of-sight. The World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC-15) has now allocated this frequency band in the Earth-to-space direction to enable transmissions from aircraft to satellites. This extends ADS-B signals beyond line-of-sight to facilitate reporting the position of aircraft equipped with ADS-B anywhere in the world, including oceanic, polar and other remote areas.

WRC-15 recognized that as the standards and recommended practices (SARP) for systems enabling position determination and tracking of aircraft are developed by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), the performance criteria for satellite reception of ADS-B signals will also need to be addressed by ICAO.
This agreement follows the disappearance and tragic loss of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370 in March 2014 with 239 people on board, which spurred worldwide discussions on global flight tracking and the need for coordinated action by ITU and other relevant organizations.

In its special meeting on global flight tracking, which took place in Montréal, 12-13 May 2014, ICAO encouraged ITU to take urgent action to provide the necessary spectrum allocations for satellites to support emerging aviation needs. In October 2014, the ITU Plenipotentiary Conference meeting in Busan, Republic of Korea, instructed WRC-15 to consider global flight tracking in its agenda.

Speaking at the Conference, The ITU Secretary General Houlin Zhao, said, “In reaching this agreement at WRC-15, ITU has responded in record time to the expectations of the global community on the major issue concerning global flight tracking,”. He further said that ITU will continue to make every effort to improve flight tracking for civil aviation.

“The allocation of frequencies for reception of ADS-B signals from aircraft by space stations will enable real-time tracking of aircraft anywhere in the world,” said François Rancy, Director of the ITU Radiocommunication Bureau. “We will continue to work with ICAO and other international organizations to enhance safety in the skies.”

This agreement extends ADS-B signals beyond line-of-sight to facilitate reporting the position of aircraft equipped with ADS-B anywhere in the world, including oceanic, polar and other remote areas.

A majority of the earth’s aerospace over 70 per cent of it, is not tracked by any device, any radar or any type of capability. The agreement is a response by the world community to the Malaysia MH370 tragedy, where they weren’t able to find an aircraft because there weren’t adequate means for tracking the aircraft. This decision is an action taken to help prevent that from happening again.

The TCRA Deputy Director for Spectrum Management Eng. Khatibu Othman said this development will allow an aircraft to be tracked anywhere in the world, provide realtime information to air traffic controllers in order to improve the safety and the efficiency of air travel around the world. “Tanzania airspace as well as passengers on aircrafts all over the world will be safe. Our country supported this Resolution in order to ensure our skies are safe and aircrafts are traced wherever they are,” said Eng. Othman Khatibu.

When interviewed, Mrs. Valentina Kayombo, a delegate from Tanzania Civil Aviation Authority said there are three main benefits for tracking an aircraft from satellite, given the frequencies allocated in this Conference. The first and foremost is improved safety in the sense that real time location and identification of flight in distress will be enhanced.

She further said another benefit by providing that capability will facilitate the exercise of search and rescue in remote areas which are beyond radar coverage because it will be easy to note exactly the location of the event area. She added that, by allocating frequencies for Global Flight Tracking it shows that aviation safety is a commitment in partnership.

Eng. Samson Mwela, a delegate from Ministry of Communications, Science and Technology Tanzania, said by the way the majority of all ITU member country agreement to allocate frequency for tracking aircrafts shows the seriousness and importance safety of air travel in the world. 

World radiocommunication conferences (WRC) are held every three to four years. It is the job of WRC to review, and, if necessary, revise the Radio Regulations, the international treaty governing the use of the radio-frequency spectrum and the geostationary-satellite and non-geostationary-satellite orbits. Revisions are made on the basis of an agenda determined by the ITU Council, which takes into account recommendations made by previous world radiocommunication conferences. The meeting started on 2nd November and expected to end on 27th November 2015 wherer member countries will sign agreements arising from WRC 2015.
Tanzania is represented in the Conference with delegates from Ministry of Communications, Science and Technology, Ministry of Infrastructure of Zanzibar, TCAA, TCRA, TMAA, TTCL and other stakeholders. The Conference has brought about 3000 delegates from around the world. The Head of delegation for Tanzania is Ambassador Extra Ordinary and Plenipotentiary, Permanent Representative of United Republic of Tanzania to UN in Geneva, Switzerland

Mkutano Mkuu wa Masafa wa ITU Wakubaliana Kupanga Masafa Ya Kufuatilia Ndege Angani

Na Innocent Mungy, Geneva, 11 Novemba 2015 

Leo Jijini Geneva, Mkutano Mkuu wa Kimataifa wa ITU wa Masafa umeamua na kukubaliana kutenga masafa maalumu kwa ajili ya kufuatilia ndege za abiria kokote zinapokuwa angani ili kuepusha majanga kama ya ya Malaysia iliyopotea na ambayo haijapatikana hadi leo. Uamuzi huu utakamilika mwaka 2017 ambapo mawasiliano na ndege zote za abiria zitakuwa zinajulikana zilipo.

Mkutano huu umekubaliana masafa ya bandi 1087.7-1092.3 MHz yatengwe kwa shughuli za usafiri wa anga (aeronautical mobile-satellite service - Earth-to-space) kwa ajili ya mawasiliano kati ya ndege zikiwa angani na vituo vya mawasiliano katika satelaiti na vituo vya mawasiliano ardhini kutoka kwenye ndege, (reception by space stations of Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) emissions from aircraft transmitters)

Masafa ya bandi 1087.7-1092.3 MHz kwa sasa yanatumika kusafirisha taarifa za mawasiliano ya ndege na vituo vilivyoko ardhini katika njia inayosafiri ndege tu. Mkutano huu wa Kimataifa wa Masafa sasa umetenga masafa haya kote duniani kutumika kutoka ardhini kuelekea angani kuwezesha mawasiliano kutoka kwenye ndege na kwenye satelaiti. Hii itapelekea sasa ndege kuonekana kokote iliko hata kama iko nje ya njia yake ya safari au ikipotea. Hii ina maana ndege zote zenye kifaa hicho (Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast - ADS-B) ambapo kifaa hicho kitakuwa kinatoa taarifa popote ndege ilipo, iwe baharini, kwenye nja ya dunia au maeneo ya mbali.

Makubaliano haya yanafuatia kupotea kwa ndege ya Malaysia MH370 mwezi machi 2014 ikiwa na abiria 239 na kuleta gumzo kubwa duniani baada ya jitihada za kuitafuta kukosa mafanikio. ITU na ICAO (Shirika la Kimataifa la Usalama wa Anga ndio waratibu wa mafanikio haya.

ICAO katika mkutano wake maalumu uliojadili ufuatiliaji wa ndege zikiwa angani (global flight tracking), uliofanyika mjini Montreal tarehe 12-13 Mei 2014, ambapo ICAO iliishauri ITU kuchukua hatua za haraka kupanga masafa maalumu kwa yan kufuatilia ndege za abiria zikiwa angani kutokana na mahitaji ya usalama wa anga duniani. Hata hivyo mwezi Oktoba mwaka 2014. ITU kupitia Mkutano wake Mkuu unaofanyika kila baada ya miaka 4 (ITU Plenipotentiary Conference) uliofanyika mjini Busan, Jamhuri ya Korea Kusini, iliagiza Mkutano mkuu wa Masafa wa Dunia kuweka ajenda ya kugawa masafa maalumu kwa kufuatilia ndege za abilria zikiwa angani.

Akizungumza baada ya makubaliano haya mjini Geneva leo alasiri, Katibu Mkuu wa Shirika la Umoja wa mataifa linalosimamia Mawasiliano, Houlin Zhao, amesema kufikiwa kwa uamuzi huu kumewezesha dunia kutoa kipaumbele kwa maamuzi ya haraka kuhusu usalama wa ndege kwa kupanga masafa nya kufuatilia ndege angani. Aliuhakikishia Mkutano huu kuwa ITU itafanya kila inaloweza kuhakikisha usalama wa unga unafanikiwa kwa ufanisi Zaidi.

Tutaendelea kufanya kazi na ICAO kuhakikisha ufuatiliaji wa ndege zikiwa safarini ni wa uhakika ili kuepusha majanga yaliyotokea huko nyuma” alisema Zhao. Aidha François Rancy, Mkurugenzi wa Mawasiliano ya usimamizi wa msafa ya radio wa ITU. Amesema ITU itakuwa mstari wa mbele kushirikiana na ICAO kulinda usalama wa wasafiri wakiwa angani ndani ya ndege.

Naibu Mkurugenzi wa Masafa wa Mamlaka ya Mawasiliano Tanzania (TCRA), Eng. Khatibu Othman amesema uamuzi huu ni muhimu kwa nchi kama Tanzania kwani itawezesha sasa Wasimamizi wa Usalama wa anga Tanzania (TCIA) kuweza kufuatilian ndege za Tanzania  Tanzania na zinazopita kwenye anga letu kwa usalama Zaidi. Hali kadhalika amesema itakuwa rahisi sasa kujua ndege Fulani iko wapi kokote duniani hata ikipotea. “Huu ulikuwa mmoja ya misimamo yetu tangu tunatoka nyumbani kuhakikisha tunapanga masafa kwa ajili ya sualka hili.

Mjumbe wa mkutano huu kutoka ~Mamlaka ya Usimamzi wa usalama wa Anga nchini (TCIA) Mrs. Valentina Kayombo, amesema kuna faida nyingi sana kwa uamuzi na makubalioano haya, ikiwa ni pamoja na kuweza kujua ndege iko wapi endapo itapata matatizo kwa ajili ya uokoaji, utawezesha kuona mahali ndege ilipo ikipta hitilafu hewani na kuweza kupanga nini cha kufanya haraka na pia kuwa na uhakika wa usalama wa ndege hata ikiwa mbali. “Hii itafanya tuweze kutekeleza kazi zetu kwa ufanisi Zaidi kama wasimamizi wa usalama wa anga” alisema mama Kayombo.

Mhandisi Samson mwela, mjumbe wa mkutano huu kutoka Tanzania amesema kuwa uamuzi huu nuliotolewa na nchinwanachama wa ITU unadhihirisha kwamba suala la usalama wa anga limepewa umuhimu mkubwa na mataifa yote. “Hii iyaimarisha mawasiliano na usalama katika sekta ya anga”, amesema Mwela.

Mkutano huu ulioanza tangu tarehe 2 mwezi Novemba unaendelea hadi tarehe 27 Novemba 2015, ambako ajenda mbalimbali bado ziko katika hatua za majadiliano na makubaliano kutiwa sahihi nan nchi wananchama wa ITU, Tanzania ikiwa mojawapo. Ujumbe wa Tanzania unaongozwa na Balozi Mwakilishi wa Kuduma wa Tanzania katika Umoja wa Mataifa, Geneva, Uswiss, Balozi Modest Mero.
