    • Supporting the interaction with ESA’s Member States on EO future technologies e.g. through dedicated information days.
    The principle tasks in the area of Frequency Management will include:
    • Supporting the preparation of technical studies and analyses related to frequency spectrum management and interference assessment;
    • Development and use of software tool (based on STK and Matlab), such as RFI simulator, in line with ITU recommendations.
