One of the unique characteristics of high altitude platform station (HAPS) Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) is that all base stations are collocated. This enables the HAPS to centrally manage the amount of interference in all cells within the coverage area and allocate resources efficiently and optimally. In this study, we propose and(More)
iii This work is dedicated to my beloved parents, for all the sacrifices they have made to ensure that I obtain the best education possible. Their unconditional love and words of encouragement has really been a tonic to me. Looking back to the dark days and tough times I have been through, my parents has always given me the strength to persevere. Then I(More)
High altitude platform station (HAPS) universal mobile telecommunications system (UMTS) has the potential to be deployed together with terrestrial tower-based UMTS, with HAPS UMTS providing continuous macrocell coverage and tower-based UMTS providing selected areas of hot spot coverage. Under such a deployment scenario, inter-system handover (between HAPS(More)
In near future, user equipment (UE) will operate in a multimode heterogeneous system, providing speech, data and new emerging value-added services to the wireless user. In this paper, we propose a UE geo-positioning method that harnesses on the cellular and peer-to-peer connectivity capabilities of the heterogeneous system, introducing higher accuracy in(More)
