Charles Cooper, a seasoned executive and spectrum engineer with more than 25 years of broad federal and private sector experience, will become the new Associate Administrator of NTIA’s Office of Spectrum Management on July 1. He joins the agency after six years at the FCC, directing RF enforcement activities, NTIA announced.
Before joining the Commission, Cooper was senior engineer and partner with engineering consulting firm du Treil, Lundin, and Rackley, Inc.
Cooper will lead a team of spectrum experts essential to NTIA’s mission of effectively managing federal spectrum. He will assist the Commerce Department with the development of the National Spectrum Strategy, and coordinate interagency preparation for the pivotal World Radiocommunication Conference this fall that sets rules for global use of the RF spectrum.
