The coming extension of cellular technology to basestations in low-earth orbit (LEO) requires a fresh look at terrestrial 3GPP channel models. Relative to such models, skyto-ground cellular channels will exhibit less diffraction, deeper shadowing, larger Doppler shifts, and possibly far stronger cross-cell interference: consequences of high elevation angles and extreme “sectorization” of LEO satellite transmissions into partially-overlapping spot beams. To permit forecasting of expected signal… Expand

  • 2016
The main interference effects occurring in the user uplinks and downlinks of a multi-beam satellite: co- Channel interference, adjacent-channel interference and cross-polarisation interference are discussed, and an optimum cluster scheme with regard to throughput is discussed. Expand
A new simple model for land mobile satellite channels: first- and second-order statistics
A new shadowed Rice (1948) model for land mobile satellite channels, where the amplitude of the line-of-sight is characterized by the Nakagami distribution, provides a similar fit to the experimental data as the well-accepted Loo's (1985) model but with significantly less computational burden.

Joint Linear Precoding and Beamforming for the Forward Link of Multi-Beam Broadband Satellite Systems
Focussing on the forward link of a multi-beam broadband satellite system, this paper considers the joint design of linear precoding and ground based beamforming at the gateway, and the performance gain generated by this joint design is quantified. Expand

The rationale of this paper is to evaluate the distribution of the sum of SR random variables, both for the case of independent as well as correlated LOS components, and to carry out an extensive performance analysis of maximal ratio combining (MRC) detection scheme on SR fading channels. Expand
On the Closed-Form Performance Analysis of Maximal Ratio Combining in Shadowed-Rician Fading LMS Channels
This paper derives approximate closed-form expressions of the probability density function and cumulative distribution function of the received signal-to-noise ratio of the MRC based receiver in SR fading LMS channels. Expand
A terabit/second satellite system for European broadband access: a feasibility study
A feasibility study for a fixed broadband access High Throughput Satellite terabit/second system by considering appropriate state‐of‐the‐art communication technologies shows that the forward link is limited by noise rather than interference, whereas the return link is interference limited. Expand
