Frederic Jans-Cooremans | Project Manager, Transport Systems

Frederic Jans-Cooremans, Project Manager, Transport Systems, STIB-MIVB

Frédéric Jans-Cooremans is a Project Manager at the STIB, Public Transport Company of Brussels. After a long experience in radio matters, he joins the company 7 years ago.
Working in a group of signaling experts, his radio knowledge was used to write the tender of a driverless metro system based on radio interchange. 
As a result, he participates at the launching of  the Spectrum Users Group of the UITP and take a role in the working group at the ETSI to share a frequency band with the ITS.
He was recently involved in the ECC mandate from the Working Group Frequency Management to provide a secure frequency band for CBTC, processing the highest priority of use in front of the ITS and Wifi band extension demands.
He moved from a day-to-day activity of the operational communications between the STIB vehicles and dispatching to the new Tetra project. Aiming to optimize and improve the radio network of the company, he is building the biggest private Tetra network of Belgium. 
He is also taking care of the coherent use of the radio waves by the company and acted as an interface for the radio matters.
Recently, he moves to a general Project manager position, ready for new challenges in the embedded part of the rolling stocks.
