Spectrum-E©‘s Technical Analysis Module performs a variety of automated spectrum engineering workflows based on recognized standards and recommendations. Spectrum-E© includes a module known as RunPropMod. RunPropMod performs a variety of automated spectrum engineering workflows based on nationally and internationally recognized standards and recommendations. This includes but is not limited to: Propagation analysis, interference analysis, electromagnetic compatibility analysis, frequency nomination/assignment, population covered analysis, and much more. The Technical Analysis features included with Spectrum-E© are made available to users through templates to simplify the user interface. Note, that the Technical Analysis Module of Spectrum-E© doesn’t serve as an RF Network Planning software.

The Technical Analysis Module of Spectrum-E© focuses on Frequency Coordination analytical features common to a spectrum manager. In addition, it also includes a GIS Module that includes all the digital cartographic data used to reference radio station and radio network locations. The GIS Module also provides terrain elevation, ground conductivity data and clutter information to the Technical Analysis Module. This data includes Digital Terrain Model (DTM) data, ground occupancy information (clutter), ground conductivity and permittivity data from ITU sources (unless otherwise specified), satellite imagery, political maps as well as the ability to import vector data (lines, points, polygons, etc.) in SHP and KML/KMZ formats.
