JCN SPECIAL ISSUE ON RECENT ADVANCES IN SATELLITE AND SPACE COMMUNICATIONS

PUBLICATION DATE: December 2010

Many of the wireless technologies used today are based on the efforts initiated by satellite communications researchers four decades ago. Thus the main technology behind the different applications is very similar in both terrestrial and space systems. This is very supportive today, with the ever growing demand for multimedia services, high mobility and global connectivity leading us to a truly transparent interoperability of our flourishing communications infrastructure. Satellite systems have always a key role to play covering this demand for ordinary as well as for emergency situations. This Special Issue of JCN will put together high-quality research articles on recent advances in satellite and space communications for next generation wireless communication networks. The focus is targeted on exploring and discussing new technical breakthrough and applications focusing on all aspects related to satellite and space communications. Articles for this special issue will be solicited through an open call-for-papers to experts in the field from industry and academia. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:


" Air Interface over satellite networks

? Adaptive coding modulation for satellite communication networks

? Fading countermeasures over satellite networks

? Power and bandwidth allocation solutions over satellite networks

? Emerging standards: DVB-S2, DVB-RCS NG, DVB-SH, 3G and beyond, IP over satellite

? Multicarrier techniques for satellite communications

? Applications of multi-user detection techniques to satellite network

? Advanced MAC protocols

? Software radio for satellite communications

? RF design and phase array for satellite communications
