On December 12, 2012, the FCC proposed to make available 100 megahertz of shared spectrum in the 3。5 GHz Band (3550-3650 MHz) using small cell and database technologies。 The Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) broadly reflects the innovative thinking of the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST), which issued a report this summer recommending spectrum sharing and small cell use in the 3。5 GHz Band。 It also builds upon the FCC’s previous work to free up spectrum by promoting spectrum sharing and enabling innovative licensing techniques。

On November 21, 2012, FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski announced the following items will be on the tentative agenda for the next open meeting (December 12, 2012):

On November 13, 2012, the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) published its webpage for the US-Mexico MRA.

On October 17, 2012, the FCC adopted revised rules to enable Wireless Communications Service (WCS) licensees’ to use a total of 30 megahertz of underutilized spectrum in the 2。3 GHz band for wireless broadband services, while protecting the adjacent Satellite Digital Audio Radio Service (SDARS) operator Sirius XM Radio Inc。 (Sirius XM) against harmful interference。 This action continues the FCC’s efforts to remove the regulatory barriers that are limiting the flexible use of spectrum for broadband services。

On October 19, 2012, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) launched an online portal to give consumers, businesses and governments quick and easy access to the latest information on products recalled from the market in Australia, Canada, Europe and the United States.

On October 15, 2012, The United States Trade Representative (USTR) announced that the governments of the United States and Israel signed a Mutual Recognition Agreement (MRA) for the Conformity Assessment of Telecommunications Equipment. The intent of the MRA is to ease burdens on U.S. companies, especially smaller manufacturers, seeking to export telecommunications products to Israel, while maintaining the United States’ high technical standards and facilitating cross-border trade.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) will accept RTCA/DO-160 commercial aircraft equipment test reports from accredited and non-accredited labs。


Regardless of a lab’s accreditation status, the FAA and the EASA require that test reports adhere to their standards of acceptability, and that the accompanying documentation meet all of their requirements. If this is not the case, the FAA and/or the EASA will require that the sub-standard submissions be revised/augmented before any further review, which will delay approval.

Rhein Tech Laboratories, Inc. is hosting a complimentary learning opportunity on October 22nd at our Herndon, Virginia location.  The Rohde and Schwarz mobile classroom will be parked at our facility where subject expert Ken Javor will teach a MIL-STD-461/464 class including a brief overview of the MIL-STD-461/464 test requirements with a historical perspective of the testing, and how it has evolved to meet the modern challenges of defense electronics testing and integration.  Additionally, the class will provide insight into the direction of future proposed MIL-STD changes, along with some initial insight to test correlation of the results.  Additionally, there will be hands-on opportunities with the latest test equipment. The class is limited to 24 students.  Please register by October 8th.
