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.



Earth exploration-satellite service science data downlink functions and technical implementation

Factors that affect the suitability of specific frequencies for Earth exploration-satellite data downlink include mission requirements, data rate requirements, equipment availability/cost and link performance. But the first and essential factor is the availability of frequency allocations by the ITU and within these allocations a favourable operating environment with minimum interference.
