The Australian Radiocommunications Study Group 7 (ARSG 7) has been established by the ACMA to prepare for International Telecommunication Union Radiocommunication Sector (ITU-R) Study Group 7 meetings in preparation for the study period ending at the Radiocommunication Assembly. ARSG 7 studies:

  • radio astronomy and radar astronomy; and
  • dissemination, reception and coordination of standard-frequency and time-signal service, including the application of satellite techniques, on a worldwide basis.

On the basis of inputs from industry, Government organisations and other interested stakeholders and taking into account Government policy, ARSG 7 will:

  • study, coordinate and provide expert advice to the ACMA to assist in the development of Australian positions and contributions for Australian Delegations to ITU-R Study Group 7 and its subordinate group meetings;
  • promote and encourage Australian expertise, research and participation in ITU-R Study Group 7 matters; and
  • provide advice and guidance on relevant ARSG 7 matters to other ARSGs and domestic bodies as necessary.
