  • SatNEx IV

    Since 2009, ESA has led SatNEx activities. SatNEx IV is jointly sponsored by ESA Technical Directorate and Telecommunications ARTES Future Preparation. The annual budget (~300,000 €) provides funding for - 85% Technical activities : 4-6 Work Items per year - 5% Dissemination and Training (Lectures and Summer Schools) - 5% Visiting...

  • Capacity Enhancement and Interference Management...

    Tight frequency reuse, e.g., beyond a 4-color scheme to increase a multi-beam satellite system’s capacity could make signal detection ‘interference-limited’, where conventional interference suppressing techniques would be ineffective, requiring rather some sophisticated/novel techniques, e.g., those exploiting interfering signals, to revive the...

  • METAMORPHOSIS

    METAMORPHOSIS will define (a) cross-industry cooperation opportunities offered to the European and Canadian satellite industry when considering the convergence of SatCom with the 5G terrestrial business/solutions/technologies/operational concepts for the targeted verticals of transport, media and public safety, (b) integrated satellite terrestrial...

  • ESA MC 8585

    This activity is aimed at identifying and analysing services and applications for which the deployment of satcom mega-constellations could bring remarkable changes. After the identification and assessment of six promising areas of interest, a business case and gap analysis particularly highlighted three most promising areas in which potential...

  • MTAILS

    The objective of this project is the assessment of satellite networks technology evolutions that can mitigate the effect of satellite latency on the user quality of experience, so that satellite networks can be integrated more seamlessly within the 5G ecosystem.

  • ALIX

    Through its activities, ALIX supports the satellite communication community to engage with 3GPP in order to develop contributions and advocate positions favourable to the SatCom sector within the 3GPP standardisation process such that they result in tangible industrial opportunities. The project gathers organisations from the satellite...
