In this chapter we present a database-driven approach for sharing spectrum between a terrestrial system and a satellite system. The concept is based on the principles used in TV White Space (TVWS) and Licensed Shared Access (LSA) concepts in the terrestrial domain, but modified according to specific requirements set by a satellite environment. The LSA concept has been shown to be a good sharing method especially with regard to satellite services since it ensures predictable Quality of Service (QoS) and protects the incumbent status in the band. In this chapter, we describe the architecture of the concept and define critical design criteria to enable efficient use of satellite bands. We also discuss business aspects from the incumbent operator, e.g. Fixed Satellite Service (FSS) operator in C band, and the entrant operator points of view, and define spectrum sharing rules.
