FCC OKs ICO Satellite

22 января 2007
The Federal Communications Commission granted New ICO Satellite Services authority to add a second geostationary satellite to its mobile satellite service system. The agency approved ICO's applications to modify its reservation of spectrum saying the new satellite will allow the company to enhance the performance of its MSS system.

According to FCC documents, the commission granted ICO's request for a reservation of spectrum for a non-geostationary satellite orbit system in the 2 GHz band in July 2002. In May of last year, the International Bureau authorized the company to modify its system to change to a one-satellite GSO system, and operate a satellite at the 91 degree west orbital location. The bureau then granted ICO's authority to move the satellite to 92.85 degrees west where now it looks to expand its system with a second GSO satellite, located at the 114.75 degrees west orbital location.

ICO said adding a second GSO satellite will allow it to enhance the performance of its system and improve signal quality. The company said that adding a satellite at 114.75 will not require any additional bandwidth, and so does not raise any interference or coordination issues with respect to service link operations.

The FCC denied the company's request to defer action on its waiver to use C-band frequencies for limited or emergency telemetry, tracking, and command operations at the orbital location because it presents significant interference problems to nearby satellites.
