Presenter: Mr John Mettrop, UK CAA
Aviation is growing strongly again and moving towards a future in which interconnectivity and information exchange are becoming increasingly vital as we seek to accommodate increased traffic and new entrants safely, securely and in a manner that is increasingly more kind to the environment. To deliver this future, aviation needs access to radio frequency spectrum, a critical infrastructure that has tended to be taken for granted in the past. With the next World Radiocommunications Conference happening in Dubai later this month, we hear from an expert in this field about how aviation is addressing this issue now and for the future. This discussion should build awareness for the Commission and inform our thinking about potential future regulatory activities for ICAO.
