International Council for Science, is responsible for stimulating and co-ordinating, on an international basis, studies, research, applications, scientific exchange, and communication in the fields of radio science. Included within the objectives are the following:
  • a) To encourage and promote international activity in radio science and its applications, for the benefit of humanity;
  • b) To encourage the adoption of common methods of measurement, and the intercomparison and standardisation of the measuring instruments used in scientific work;
  • c) To stimulate and co-ordinate studies of:
    • the scientific aspects of telecommunications using electromagnetic waves, guided and unguided;
    • the generation, emission, radiation, propagation, reception, and detection of fields and waves, and the processing of the signals embedded in them.
  • d) To represent radio science to the general public, and to public and private organisations.
