Department of Defense Frequency Coordinator
Department of Defense Area Frequency Coordinator, White Sands Missile Range
The Test Center Frequency Management Office has the responsibilities for managing frequency allocation and authorization for requested frequencies by customers testing on the range (i.e. all DoD sponsored test and training activities within the entire State of New Mexico, West Texas, Western Colorado, and Eastern Utah).
The Frequency Management Office follows the procedures and policies for coordinating frequency allocation for research, development, acquisition, fielding and operation of Army material requiring frequency spectrum support. The Frequency Management Office adheres to the Army spectrum management functional processes necessary to implement the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) Manual of Regulations and Procedures for Federal Radio Frequency Management and the provisions of Dept. of Defense Directive (DoDD) 4650.1
The Area Frequency Coordinator is authorized to negotiate band sharing and mediate spectrum conflicts and radio interference directly with all area government and civil activities. This decentralized organizational structure allows maximum flexibility for test operations, and avoids lengthy processing at the national level.
