Evaluation of LTE and Aeronautical Radionavigation Service Electromagnetic Compatibility in 694–790 MHz Frequency Band
In 2012 the 694-790 MHz (700 MHz) band was allocated to the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) Region 1 for mobile service (excluding aeronautical mobile), and was identified to the International Mobile Telecommunications (IMT). However, countries of Region 1 listed in Radio Regulations footnote No. 5.312 will also be able to continue using of these frequencies for their aeronautical radionavigation service (ARNS). This allocation comes into force immediately after the 2015 World Radiocommunication Conference (WRC-15). The objective of this article is to assess the electromagnetic compatibility of aeronautical radionavigation service and mobile service operating in 694 MHz–790 MHz. For interference analysis the Minimum Coupling Loss (MCL) method and Monte Carlo method simulation was used. The obtained results provide the minimum coupling distance required between ARNS and mobile service Long Term Evolution (LTE) stations to maintain the required performance level of the ARNS systems.
