High Altitude Pseudo Satellites (HAPS) are stratospheric platforms that stay over a fixed point on Earth from weeks to months. Capitalising on these developments, the European Space Agency is reaching out to the Telecommunication, Earth...
Broadband satellite systems are at a unique position for providing telecommunication infrastructure in security critical situations for effectively dealing with emergency and disaster management, and rescue and relief operations. Disasters are unpredictable in space and time and often take place in areas with non-existing, partially damaged or completely destroyed communication infrastructure, compromising any rescue and recovery effort. The proposed next generation of satellite OBP hosted payloads could help in these extreme conditions.
The feasibility study of VDES satellite component system consisted in exploring user needs and required services, defining satellite technical solutions in response of the user needs and performing trade-off analyses of the satellite technical solutions.
