The ITU Working Group works to protect and enhance the use of existing satellite spectrum bands, and develop new satellite bands. It focuses on preparatory work for World Radio Conferences (WRCs), implementing outcomes of previous WRCs, and technical studies on compatibility between satellite and other services. The group works in ITU-R Working Parties, regional groups, and national committees, ensuring consistency, coordination, and representation of industry positions across regional (CEPT/ATU/ASMG/RCC/APT/CITEL) and sub-regional meetings.
