FCC comms watchdog’s move to allocate car collision spectrum has aviation safety benefits

The US Federal Communications Commission is assigning a larger consolidated block of spectrum for use by anti-collision systems at airports and on aircraft, reports Reuters.

The vote – which harmonises vehicle spectrum with European rules that could allow car makers to bring technologies to the US market faster – will also support foreign object debris detection radars on airport runways and aircraft wingtip radars that can help avoid collisions with objects while moving around airports.
