UNCLASSIFIEDSSRA Basics Identify Regulatory, Operational, and Technical spectrumsupportability (SS) and electromagnetic environmental effects (E3)Issues and assign risk level For each identified risk, there should be a risk mitigation measureidentified Submitted through channels identified by each service– Process typically includes Service Spectrum Management Office,with Chief Information Officer (CIO) review/approval andSpectrum Supportability Determination (SSD). SSRA required when the acquisition includes a S-D system orequipment, including commercial item (CI) and non-developmentalitem (NDI).

UNCLASSIFIEDSSRA Basics (Continued) Complex “system-of-systems” (SoS), “family-of-systems”(FoS), and/or Platforms require:– One SSRA for the SoS/FoS/Platform to include ALL, imbedded S-Dequipment– Individual SSRA’s are required for each S-D Equipment (Exception: S-Dequipments, with Stage 4 approval, are “Grandfathered” in; unless, the S-Dequipment is receiving an upgrade/modification that affects its EMcharacteristics.)– Regulatory, Technical, Operational, and E3 Components are REQUIRED foreach SSRA Contact Service, SMO early for guidance– What spectrum/frequency band(s) should be used– What SSRA(s) is/are required Detail and scope of each SSRA depends on:––––the item’s entry point into the Defense Acquisition System (DAS)its complexitythe intended operational environmentthe maturity of the designUNCLASSIFIED

UNCLASSIFIEDUNCLASSIFIEDLessons Learned ESC Request Submission does not ensure compliance with all regulatoryrequirements nor does it allow operation of systems discuss frequencyassignments versus ESC Requests. Make sure the planned spectrum use is allocated for the intendedfunction radio service and station class Look at all three ITU regions, not just US Allocations Be wary of the "age" of HSNWDO data (not real-time enough). For MS A look at existing systems with similar technical attributes Coordinate as early as possible with your service SMO Some of the Suggested Tasks for the Technical Component haveRegulatory implications and may be addressed in this section. Early and often discussions with the DoD Component SMO will save Timeand Money and reduce Risk.UNCLASSIFIEDUNCLASSIFIED

UNCLASSIFIEDSSRA Components OverviewTechnical Identify other military and civilian and non-U.S. systems likely to be co-site or inclose proximity by querying DoD or national system databases Identify undesired interactions that may require further study using initial andmeasured technical parameters for candidate system and the technical parametersof S-D systems expected to be in operational environment. Determine acceptable received EM levels to ensure that coexistence is feasible. Evaluate system performance and effect on other S-D systems that may operate cofrequency or adjacent frequency expected in the intended environment. Quantify, using tests or M&S, the impact of changes to the operational “signals-inspace” RF parameters to co-site EMC. Determine potential link degradation and blockage due to atmospheric conditions,terrain and building obstructions within intended deployment areas Generate recommendations to mitigate potential technical issues.Joint Services GuideUNCLASSIFIED

UNCLASSIFIEDSSRA Components OverviewTechnical Identify and quantify interactions with non-DoD, other Federal, andcommercial users in the environment. Identify/update spectrum risks and recommendations for mitigation oftechnical issues. For non-communications systems (radar, passive sensors, etc.), determinethe appropriate operational degradation as a function of the level ofreceived environmental and co-site EMI. Address how limitations or restrictions identified in the ESC/HNC processare being mitigated and/or resolved for each S-D equipment. Assessment:– Identify/update spectrum risks and recommend mitigation techniquesof Technical issues.Joint Services GuideUNCLASSIFIED

UNCLASSIFIEDSSRA Components OverviewOperational Identify:– The S-D equipments that are incorporated, supported by theAcquisition,– The operational performance requirements, as specified in theOperational Needs Statement (ONS) or Joint Urgent OperationalNeeds Statement (JUONS) or, and the acquisition documents (e.g. ICD,CDD, CPD, or information support plan (ISP)),– The S-D systems anticipated to be in system’s operating environment,– Assess the capability to meet or exceed the requirements Assessment: Identify/update risks and develop tactics,techniques, and procedures (TTPs) to mitigate operationalissues.Joint Services GuideUNCLASSIFIED

UNCLASSIFIEDUNCLASSIFIEDData Requirements & Sources JCIDS Documents– ICD, CDD, CPD, ISP, CONOPs– Systems description information Facilities Requirements Documents (if applicable)– May Provide EME Discussion with Program/Engineering personnel on impact tooperations of identified EM issues Consider impact of identified regulatory issues– Operational impact if you can't radiate or have no approved HNC/ESCUNCLASSIFIEDUNCLASSIFIED

UNCLASSIFIEDUNCLASSIFIEDLessons Learned Understand the intent; not a CONOPs or simply a descriptionof how the system operates– What other systems will/are operating in the same physical/spectralspace?– Will geospatial separation be required for frequency use managementfor simultaneous operation with other systems? EX: Simultaneous employment of UAVs using common control frequencyband EX: Flying an aircraft with a new 225-400 MHz transmitter which plans toutilize four 5 MHz wide sub-bands within the 225-400 MHz band - what willbe the impact to operation of existing 225-400 MHz users?UNCLASSIFIEDUNCLASSIFIED

UNCLASSIFIEDSSRA Components – E3 AssessmentNote: Not specifically called out in 4650 Determine the potential for EMC and EMI interactionsbetween the proposed system, other systems, and itsanticipated operational EME. Quantify the potential EMI between the candidate systemand S-D systems used by other DoD units in theoperational environment. Determine the effect on overall system performance as aresult of any EM interaction. Perform additional E3 analyses (e.g. EMV, EMP, HERP,HERF, HERO, lightning, etc) as required by the MILDEPSMO.
