  Unfortunately, Ms. Biljana Ilieva, who worked as head of department in the ORCA project's end-user AEC, passed away in 2015. She was the driving force behind AEC's efforts to collaborate on extensive measurement, modeling and coexistence aspects with UKIM and the other ORCA project partners. All ORCA project participants are deeply saddened with this loss. We acknowledge her work ethic, enthusiasm, kindness and spirit, which led to many ORCA related successful accomplishments.
