IEEE BV Talk: An Overview of Satcom Development and Recent Evolution

#satcom #communications #systems #LEO #space

The field of satellite communications (Satcom)  has seen major changes and new developments  in the last few years. Most notably, we are experiencing the emergence of very large LEO (low earth orbit) constellations, major enhancements to space defense, important developments in earth observation as well as the required support associated with the new challenges of space exploration (lunar, planetary etc.)   

The traditional GEO (geostationary orbit) satcom market is facing major changes and challenges. The technical basis of satcom is highlighted and examples of important new architectures and applications are described.

This presentation focuses on non-military applications.
