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.

Frequency issues
Sub-bands n1) to n4): Enclosed NMR sensors are devices where the material/object under investigation is put inside the enclosure of the NMR device. NMR techniques use nuclear magnetic resonance excitation and magnetic field strength response of a material/object under test to get information about material properties based on resonance frequency responses of isotopes of atoms. Nuclear magnetic resonance imaging and magnetic resonance tomography systems are not included in this scope.
