Space agency to tackle wireless comms capacity

The UK Space Agency has signed a memorandum of understanding with the communications regulator Ofcom to establish a body that will address issues around wireless communications capacity.

In an announcement on 20 May, the UK Space Agency said that it would form a “CEO-level liaison group” and an advisory committee to tackle difficult choices that will have to be made in prioritising the use of wireless communications capacity. 

The agency said that this would be part of the government’s aim to remove barriers to the growth of space-related industries, a market that is estimated to be worth £11.3 billion.
