SEAMCAT - Spectrum Engineering Advanced Monte Carlo Analysis Tool

Introduction to SEAMCAT

SEAMCAT is a software tool, based on the Monte-Carlo simulation method, which is developed within the frame of European Conference of Postal and Telecommunication administrations (CEPT).

This tool permits statistical modelling of different radio interference scenarios for performing sharing and compatibility studies between wireless systems operating in overlapping or adjacent frequency bands.

The software is maintained by the ECO and is distributed free of charge.

The most recent documentation is the online SEAMCAT handbook

A pdf version of the SEAMCAT Handbook was published in April 2016 as ECC Report 252 (51 Mbytes)

You can find some practical tips here.

The ECO organises SEAMCAT workshops in a regular basis. You will find the latest presentations available in the documentation area of the STG page. 

SEAMCAT source code

It is possible to request access to the SEAMCAT source code. More information is available at the SEAMCAT source code page.

SEAMCAT stakeholders

The SEAMCAT project is an ongoing WGSE (Working Group Spectrum Engineering) activity. The daily maintenance of the project and the SEAMCAT software is entrusted to the ECO. STG (SEAMCAT Technical Group) acts as the supervising committee and source of technical expertise.

SEAMCAT community

There is one e-mail address to report bugs and enhancements and two e-mail reflectors open to administrations, industry and academia. They have different purposes:

This e-mail reflector allows to disseminate useful information within the group of SEAMCAT users (i.e. user support messages, usage tips, information on updates and questions/answers from members of the SEAMCAT community, etc..). This e-mail is NOT intended to report bugs (see above).

You need to register in order to be able to send an e-mail to the reflector:

  • Public STG E-mail reflector

This e-mail reflector is intended for exchanges between active STG members, who contribute to the enhancement of SEAMCAT. When you become a member of the STG Group you are automatically added to the e-mail reflector. You can find more information in the STG page.
