This paper presents the study carried out to design and develop an archive of propagation measurements. The goal of this action was to be able to keep measured datasets in good shape, because due to the rapid changing situation in the telecommunication sector, some of the datasets may become unavailable. This will be damageable since these datasets are of very good value for the development of propagation models, that are used for Satcom systems design. This activity results in the development of a Global Archive of propagation data collected worldwide. The Global Archive is accessible through a web interface and will be proposed for Standardization (e.g. to the ITU) in order to ease the adoption by Industry, National and International organisations.
