ANNEX 6: RADIODETERMINATION APPLICATIONS

Scope of annex
This annex covers frequency bands and regulatory as well as informative parameters recommended for SRD radiodetermination applications including Equipment for Detecting Movement and Alert. Radiodetermination is defined as the determination of the position, velocity and/or other characteristics of an object, or the obtaining of information relating to these parameters, by means of the propagation properties of radio waves. Radiodetermination equipment typically conducts measurements to obtain such characteristics. Any kind of point-to-point or point-to-multipoint radio communications is outside of this definition.
