Spectrum XXI: Electronic Processing of Spectrum Proposals.

Open to U.S. Government Employees and Federal Contractors

Spectrum XXI (SXXI) provides federal agencies with an automated tool to support the electronic processing of spectrum proposals with NTIA.

This client/server software facilitates the exchange of frequency assignment requests and supports the frequency assignment process. Spectrum XXI includes several engineering programs, such as point-to-point and coverage plots with terrain features. It includes the required compliance checks that all frequency proposals submitted to NTIA must include.

Spectrum XXI training is presented as a five day live on-line instructor-led virtual class.

To register for training please contact your agency’s IRAC Frequency Assignment Subcommittee (FAS) Representative.

If you have questions about Spectrum XXI software or training, please contact SXXISupport.

Any schedule changes will be posted it here and on the OSMtraining email listserv.
