This paper presents a new type of multiple access for fixed and mobile satellite communication systems aiming at improving the bandwidth efficiency of highly reliable links suited for air traffic management and other safety services, using compact and low cost terminals. The purpose of this work is to incorporate highly redundant turbo coding technology in(More)
Aeronautical communications are playing an important role in the air traffic control as well as new passenger communication services. Due to the global coverage required, satellite transponders provide the required links which are traditionally limited to narrowband throughputs (e.g. 64 kb/s) due to the propagation channel characteristics.

This paper describes two IP-level architectures for connecting 3G femtocells via Iuh to a femtocell gateway over a BGAN satellite link. These architectures allow femtocells to be deployed in isolated regions where satellite links serve as the only means of communication (e.g. oceanic outposts, deserts, rural regions, disaster areas, etc). Additionally, this(More)
