TYPE APPROVALS

Aetheric Engineering Ltd is an Authorised Test Entity, for the Type Approval of earth stations and VSATs,Aetheric Engineering Ltd is an Authorised Test Entity, for the Type Approval of earth stations and VSATs, under the auspices of the GVF’s Mutual Recognition Arrangement (MRA). Under the MRA, type approvals granted by one organisation are recognised by the others, in place of the previous inefficiency whereby manufacturers were required to repeat testing for multiple approvals from the individual satellite operators.

Interference is a major issue, affecting service quality. The type approval process is one part of the effort to minimise interference, affecting both the same network and adjacent networks. When a terminal has been type approved, there can be confidence that (if properly installed and maintained) it will not create interference; the transmission pattern of the antenna will meet requirements, the transmitted power will remain within appropriate limits, and the antenna will be pointing at the correct satellite.
