Ultra-wideband radio technology (UWB), is a wireless access technology that allows exchanging of data over a radio channel between over short distances at very high speed and low power consumption. UWB signals are short pulses the entire energy of which is distributed over a given wide region of the spectrum. With a sufficiently high total power transmitted over the air and with low power consumption and a pulsed nature of data transmission, a high data transmission rate can be obtained. This work has done interference analysis of ultra-wide bandwidth technologies (UWB) operating in the frequency band 7240-8240 MHz to the Earth monitoring and meteorological satellite systems that operate in this band. Taking into account the rapid development of users’ UWB devices in different frequency bands, the study tries to estimate the long-term impact of aggregate interference from UWB devices located around the satellite Earth stations. The study considers two satellite systems as an example of victim receivers. The UWB density assumptions made in the studies are based on the forecasts of CEPT and UWB Alliance.
