Activity Code
1B.119
Objectives

The focus of this activity is :

  • to identify the most relevant 5G scenarios  

  • to analyze and quantify the level/type of flexibility needed in next-generation satellites, where satellites could play a relevant role

  • to address the possible technologies / topologies / concepts answering those needs and evaluate their relevance towards a commercial business case. 

  • to allow the definition of precise development roadmaps and to recommend :

    • the development of new system concepts for the next generation of "5G compatible" satellites;

    • the new technologies to be developed in that respect;

    • future 5G standard requirements to ensure the place of a satellite component in its architecture.

Challenges

Define the future 5G systems from User Cases selection (LEO or GEO satellites, which data rate for which terminal? …)

Invent the concepts and satellite equipments supporting 5G environment.
