These standards provide the criteria to determine equipment and frequency use requirements and are intended to ensure efficient and interference-free use of the radio frequency RF spectrum. These standards also provide a common framework for sharing data and providing support for test operations between ranges. The RF spectrum is a limited natural resource therefore, efficient use of available spectrum is mandatory. In addition, susceptibility to interference must be minimized. Systems not conforming to these standards require justification upon application for frequency assignment, and the use of such systems is highly discouraged. The standards contained herein are derived from the National Telecommunications and Information Administrations NTIA Manual of Regulations and Procedures for Federal Radio Frequency Management.
