- On July 5, 2012, the FCC issued order FCC 12-72 modifying the Part 15 rules to enable more effective vehicular radar technologies and fixed radar systems used at airports to detect foreign objects on runways. The Commission’s order responds to a request from Toyota to change the limits for radiated emissions in the 76-77 GHz band to allow more use of “stop and go” adaptive cruise control and rear pre-collision systems in the cars it manufactures for sale in the United States. The order eliminates a requirement that vehicular radars decrease power when the vehicle is not in motion and adopted a single set of emission limits for forward, side, and rear-looking radars. The revised rules also allow use of the band at airports with the same emission limits as those for vehicular radars, to detect foreign object debris on runways and monitor “aircraft and service vehicles on taxiways and other airport vehicle service areas that have no public vehicle access (e.g., gate areas).” FCC 12-72 is available here.
