Combining some of the best terrestrial and satellite systems' characteristics, high altitude platforms (HAPs) have recently emerged as an alternative solution for the provision of broadband services. Characterised by challenging propagation conditions in the allocated frequency bands, they require efficient utilisation of radio interface in order to make best use of the available spectrum. This paper analyses possible utilisation of DVB-S2 standard on HAPs, focusing on the performance of its… CONTINUE READING
