Satellite Communications in the 5G Era explores promising scenarios for 5G Satellite Communications (SatCom), novel paradigms for satellite-terrestrial integration and emerging technologies for the next generation of satellite systems and hybrid/integrated satellite-terrestrial systems, and focuses on recent research efforts towards 5G and beyond.
Satellite communications plays a vital role in ensuring seamless access to any telecommunications service anytime and anywhere, and is only a viable option for delivering telecommunication services in a wide range of sectors such as aeronautical, military, maritime, rescue and disaster relief. It should be an important component of 5G-and-beyond wireless architectures as it complements terrestrial telecommunication solutions in various scenarios and will ensure the expansion of the 5G ecosystem towards highly reliable and secure global wireless networks.
Shree Krishna Sharma holds a PhD degree in Wireless Communications from the University of Luxembourg and his research interests include cognitive wireless communications, satellite communications, signal processing techniques for 5G and beyond wireless, and wireless IoT. He is the author of more than 80 technical papers in scholarly journals, scientific books, and international conferences, and has over 1000 google scholar citations. He is the recipient of outstanding PhD Thesis award from FNR, Luxembourg and the Best Paper Award in CROWNCOM 2015.
Symeon Chatzinotas is the Deputy Head of the research group SIGCOM in the Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust, University of Luxembourg and a Visiting Professor at the University of Parma. He is the co-recipient of the 2014 Distinguished Contributions to Satellite Communications Award from the Satellite and Space Communications Technical Committee, IEEE Communications Society.
Pantelis-Daniel Arapoglou is a Communications System Engineer with the European Space Agency ESA/ESTEC where he supports R&D activities and developments in the areas of satellite telecommunications, digital and optical communications, and high-data-rate telemetry for Earth observation applications. Currently, he is following SatNEx IV which is funded by ESA, and is also involved in the standardization work of the CCSDS optical working group.
This book is ideal for Telecom Engineers, researchers, lecturers or students to identify suitable techniques and evaluate the feasibility and investment costs involved in the deployment process and in proposing and defining satellite communication standards and protocols
