The NSMA is a voluntary international association of microwave radio/wireless and satellite frequency coordinators, licensees, manufacturers and regulators. Established in 1984, at the request of the FCC, the Association provides a forum to develop industry guidelines for efficient use and management of the frequency spectrum by the wireless telecommunications community.

NSMA provides a linkage between government regulations and industry practice by developing recommendations that streamline and standardize procedures used by the frequency coordination community. We strive to provide an open forum for stakeholders to mold responsible spectrum industry practice and resolve conflicts.
