PACI Leases 700 MHz A Block Spectrum
Friday, April 06, 2018 | Comments

Praxis Aerospace Concepts International (PACI), a developer of drone ports and unmanned aerial systems (UAS), entered into a long-term spectrum lease within the upper 700 MHz A block. Financial details of the lease were not disclosed.

The upper 700 MHz A block spectrum consists of 1 megahertz paired at 757 – 758 and 787 – 788 MHz.

PACI expects to increase the geographical coverage of its unmanned systems services (USS) network in the Southwestern United States. The new areas of coverage include counties in Nevada (Clark, Esmeralda, Lincoln, Mineral and Nye); Arizona (Mohave, La Paz and Yuma); and Utah (Beaver, Garfield, Iron, Piute and Washington).

“We are very pleased to have helped Praxis Aerospace meet its spectrum needs,” said Michael Gottdenker, chairman and CEO of Access Spectrum. “The upper 700 MHz A block provides drone operating companies access to exclusive, licensed spectrum without needing to compete with commercial carriers for licensed spectrum through an auction. And it enables drone operators to focus their flight command and control on a single band that furthers a safer beyond-line-of-sight environment.”
