Petition for Rulemaking to Amend 47 C.F.R. Part 87, Aeronautical Utility Mobile Stations

Date: 
July 28, 2008

Petition for rulemaking to amend 47 C.F.R. Part 87, to allow Aeronautical Utility Mobile Stations to use the 1090 MHz frequency for runway vehicle identification and collision avoidance. NTIA asked the FCC to modify its rules to allow airport service vehicles to be equipped with transmitters that would permit air traffic control to identify and control these vehicles, thereby reducing the risk of aircraft colliding with vehicles on the airport surface.
