UWB / Wideband SRD Applications

The following table lists the frequency ranges available for UWB and Wideband SRD applications.

UWB technology means technology for short-range radiocommunication, involving the intentional generation and transmission of radio-frequency energy that spreads over a very large frequency range, which may overlap several frequency bands allocated to radiocommunication services.
Short Range Devices (SRD) using UWB technology can be used for communications, measurement, location, imaging, surveillance and medical systems.
Devices using UWB technology and Short Range Devices (SRD) operate on a non-interference and non-protected basis.
