National Spectrum Strategy

Developing a National Spectrum Strategy

Sufficient access to the radio spectrum is critical for national security, public safety, competitive next-generation communications, and scientific discovery. Spectrum access enables advances in U.S. innovation, connectivity, and competition benefiting all Americans. Access to spectrum must be managed responsibly and efficiently to achieve key economic, social, and national security goals. 

To ensure Americans have sufficient access to spectrum resources, the Secretary of Commerce has called for the development and implementation of a comprehensive National Spectrum Strategy (NSS) for the United States. This strategy will represent a government-wide approach to maximizing the potential of our nation’s spectrum resources. 
NTIA is leading the development of the NSS and implementation plan in collaboration with the Federal Communications Commission, and in coordination with other Executive Branch agencies.
