Department of Defense Releases AWS-3 Coordination Workbook Update and Experimental Operations Data


Earlier this year, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) released a series of federal agency transition plans in preparation for the November 2014 advanced wireless service (AWS)-3 spectrum auction (designated as Auction 97).  NTIA and the Federal Communications Commission also jointly released a Public Notice detailing required procedures to coordinate spectrum usage with federal incumbents in the AWS-3 band.  NTIA recently added a file on its Transition Plan and Transition Data webpage for the 1755-1780 MHz band with informational data on Department of Defense (DoD) Experimental Operations.  DoD also posted a revised Workbook Information File, which explains that it may be beneficial to potential bidders to understand the extent of these secondary and non-interference basis operations.  The Wireless Telecommunications Bureau strongly encourages Auction 97 applicants to examine the revised information.
