§ 15.525 Coordination requirements.
(a) UWB imaging systems require coordination through the FCC before the
equipment may be used. The operator shall comply with any constraints
on equipment usage resulting from this coordination.
(b) The users of UWB imaging devices shall supply operational areas to
the FCC Office of Engineering and Technology, which shall coordinate
this information with the Federal Government through the National
Telecommunications and Information Administration. The information
provided by the UWB operator shall include the name, address and other
pertinent contact information of the user, the desired geographical
area(s) of operation, and the FCC ID number and other nomenclature of
the UWB device. If the imaging device is intended to be used for mobile
applications, the geographical area(s) of operation may be the state(s)
or county(ies) in which the equipment will be operated. The operator of
an imaging system used for fixed operation shall supply a specific
geographical location or the address at which the equipment will be
operated. This material shall be submitted to Frequency Coordination
Branch, OET, Federal Communications Commission, at the address of the
FCC's main office indicated in 47 CFR 0.401(a), ATTN: UWB Coordination.
(c) The manufacturers, or their authorized sales agents, must inform
purchasers and users of their systems of the requirement to undertake
detailed coordination of operational areas with the FCC prior to the
equipment being operated.
(d) Users of authorized, coordinated UWB systems may transfer them to
other qualified users and to different locations upon coordination of
change of ownership or location to the FCC and coordination with
existing authorized operations.
(e) The FCC/NTIA coordination report shall identify those geographical
areas within which the operation of an imaging system requires
additional coordination or within which the operation of an imaging
system is prohibited. If additional coordination is required for
operation within specific geographical areas, a local coordination
contact will be provided. Except for operation within these designated
areas, once the information requested on the UWB imaging system is
submitted to the FCC no additional coordination with the FCC is
required provided the reported areas of operation do not change. If the
area of operation changes, updated information shall be submitted to
the FCC following the procedure in paragraph (b) of this section.
(f) The coordination of routine UWB operations shall not take longer
than 15 business days from the receipt of the coordination request by
NTIA. Special temporary operations may be handled with an expedited
turn-around time when circumstances warrant. The operation of UWB
systems in emergency situations involving the safety of life or
property may occur without coordination provided a notification
procedure, similar to that contained in § 2.405(a) through (e) of this
chapter, is followed by the UWB equipment user.
