"There is no disruption or interference in the UAE between 5G networks and air navigation systems," affirmed a TDRA statement on Thursday.
Noting that the 5G stations in the UAE have been installed in multiple places for many years, TDRA said no negative impact on the safety of air navigation systems has occurred.
TDRA bases its 5G plans on studies that take into account the safety of frequencies and potential impact on other sectors. The authority also considers the decisions and procedures approved by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) in this regard.
TDRA has confirmed that it is coordinating in this matter with the General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA), which in turn coordinates and communicates with the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) and European and American aviation safety regulatory agencies to ensure the highest levels of safety and security in this context.
