Adjacent Satellite Interference in Mobile/VSAT Environments

A number of recent government and commercial RFPs have included language which specifies that bidders must propose bandwidth which is “free of interference”. For a variety of reasons expounded below, complete freedom from interference is practically impossible in an operational environment. However, in most cases interference levels are kept low enough, by careful coordination with adjacent operators and services, and by careful terminal selection and pointing, that they can be overcome. More accurate RFP language would request bandwidth which is “free of service impacting interference levels”.
