FAA and US Communications Agency Hold 5G C-Band Flight Talks – Sources

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Senior leaders of the Federal Aviation Administration and the Commerce Department’s communications unit met to discuss aviation safety concerns raised by new 5G network deployments, two sources familiar with the meeting told Reuters on Tuesday.

Acting FAA Administrator Billy Nolen and Alan Davidson, who heads the National Communications and Information Administration (NTIA), met for approximately 30 minutes on Monday, sources said. Last month, Nolin NTIA Books Looking for delays in some 5G C-Band transmissions from smaller operators due to aviation safety concerns.

The FAA and NTIA declined to comment on the meeting.

Nolen said in his Oct. 21 letter that the agency wants the FCC to authorize AT&T’s voluntary mitigation measures. (Tennessee) and Verizon (VZ.N) It approved it earlier this year to mandate 19 smaller telecoms and other spectrum holders.

“Flight safety will be compromised if the United States government does not codify certain additional operating limits in the 5G C-Band environment,” Nolen wrote.

Industry officials say the FAA has raised the idea of ​​temporarily banning the deployment of some stations in the 3.8-3.9MHz block and maintaining some current power limits until January 2024.

The letter was sent to Davidson and FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworsel was transcribed.

Rosenworcel confirmed last week that she had received the letter. “We are in discussions with our colleagues at NTIA,” Rosenworcel said.

5G service may interfere with planes’ altimeters, which give data on the plane’s height above the ground and are needed to land in bad weather, which led to disruptions at some US airports earlier this year.

Verizon and AT&T in June voluntarily agreed To delay some uses of the C-Band 5G until July 2023 as carriers work to upgrade aircraft to ensure they are not subject to interference.

Airlines CEOs had warned on January 17 of an attack An imminent “catastrophic” airline crisis It can power almost all traffic due to 5G deployment. An agreement struck shortly before the January deadline did not stop dozens of foreign airlines from cancellation International flights to the United States.
