This Handbook provides full and comprehensive information on the development of EESS systems. Specifically, it provides basic definitions, sheds light on the technical principles underlying the operation of systems and presents their main applications to assist administrations in the spectrum planning, engineering and deployment aspects of these systems.



Spaceborne active microwave sensors operating in the earth exploration-satellite service (active)

The purpose of this section is to describe the radio spectrum frequency needs of the spaceborne active sensors in the EESS (active). The intent is to present the unique types of sensors and their characteristics which determine their individual frequency needs; to present the preferred frequencies and bandwidths; to present performance and interference criteria necessary for compatibility studies with other services in the frequency bands of interest; and to present sharing considerations.
