Mid-Atlantic Fishery Management Council (MAFMC); Public Meeting, 18737-18738 [2017-08128]

Download as PDF sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 76 / Friday, April 21, 2017 / Notices was to make reproducible measurements under clearly-defined test conditions to isolate impacts of radiated LTE signals on GPS receivers, and to allow others to make comparable measurements if desired. To accomplish this, the approach aimed to measure the response of selected GPS devices given well-controlled GPS and LTE power levels under fixed, stable thermal noise conditions, while limiting the number of other extraneous variables. In May of 2016, the NASCTN team completed the draft test plan and distributed it to a cross-section of GPS manufacturers, Federal agencies, and spectrum regulators and released it publicly for comments to obtain technical feedback on the proposed method. Over a two-month period, NASCTN received 159 comments from 10 different organizations. The NASCTN test team reviewed the comments and developed a revised test plan in July of 2016 that addressed the technical issues raised in the comments. The draft test plan, the revised test plan, and the adjudicated comments from the review process are all publicly available on the NASCTN Web site at: https:// www.nist.gov/programs-projects/ impact-lte-signals-gps-receivers. Over a three-month period, from August through October 2016, NASCTN performed the radiated measurements associated with this project at two facilities—a semi-anechoic chamber at National Technical Systems in Longmont, Colorado and at a fullyanechoic chamber at the NIST Broadband Interoperability Testbed facility in Boulder, Colorado, using the revised test plan. NASCTN relied on technical staff from NIST and the U.S. Army’s Electronic Proving Grounds to perform and validate the measurements and collect the data. The team was multidisciplinary, including expertise in GPS devices and simulation, radiated radiofrequency measurements, timing measurements, microwave metrology, statistical analysis and data processing. In total, NASCTN performed 1,476 hours of testing and collected over 19,000 data files for a variety of measurands, including carrier-to-noisedensity ratio (C/N0), 3D position error, timing error, number of satellites in view, time to first fix, and time to first reacquisition, that were collected from a number of GPS devices at a baseline condition (no LTE signals present) and over a large range of LTE signal power levels. Subsequent data processing yielded a set of 3,859 anonymized data files (780 MB) that may be requested here: https://www.nist.gov/sites/default/ files/documents/2017/02/15/impact_of_ VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:30 Apr 20, 2017 Jkt 241001 lte_on_gps_-_measurement_data_ request_form.pdf. More information on this NASTCN project, including the document library and the archived draft test plan, the revised test plan, adjudicated comments, and supplemental information, is available at: https://www.nist.gov/programsprojects/impact-lte-signals-gpsreceivers. Due to significant interest in these measurements by regulators for assessing LTE signals on performance of GPS devices, Federal agencies, and the GPS community, NASCTN is hosting a public meeting to provide an overview of the project, the test methodology and the test results. NASCTN will also answer questions on the project, the testing methodology and the test results. The final agenda for the public meeting will be posted on the NASCTN Web page, available at: https://www.nist.gov/ communications-technology-laboratoryctl/nasctn.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: The Gulf of Mexico, South Atlantic, and Caribbean Fishery Management Councils, in conjunction with NOAA Fisheries and the Atlantic and Gulf States Marine Fisheries Commissions have implemented the Southeast Data, Assessment and Review (SEDAR) process, a multi-step method for determining the status of fish stocks in the Southeast Region. SEDAR is a multistep process including: (1) Data Workshop, (2) a series of assessment webinars, and (3) A Review Workshop. The product of the Data Workshop is a report that compiles and evaluates potential datasets and recommends which datasets are appropriate for assessment analyses. The assessment webinars produce a report that describes the fisheries, evaluates the status of the stock, estimates biological benchmarks, projects future population conditions, and recommends research and monitoring needs. The product of the Review Workshop is an Assessment Summary documenting panel opinions regarding the strengths and weaknesses of the stock assessment and input data. Participants for SEDAR Workshops are appointed by the Gulf of Mexico, South Atlantic, and Caribbean Fishery Management Councils and NOAA Fisheries Southeast Regional Office, HMS Management Division, and Southeast Fisheries Science Center. Participants include data collectors and database managers; stock assessment scientists, biologists, and researchers; constituency representatives including fishermen, environmentalists, and NGO’s; International experts; and staff of Councils, Commissions, and state and federal agencies. The items of discussion during the post-Data Workshop webinar are as follows: Panelists will present finalized data for review and recommendation. Although non-emergency issues not contained in this agenda may come before this group for discussion, those issues may not be the subject of formal action during this meeting. Action will be restricted to those issues specifically identified in this notice and any issues arising after publication of this notice that require emergency action under section 305(c) of the Magnuson-Stevens Fishery Conservation and Management Act, provided the public has been SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 notified of the intent to take final action to address the emergency.
