OPTIMIZING SATELLITE COMMUNICATION
SatNEx V is a European Space Agency project within the framework Technology Development Programme.
The SatNEx V project deals with the scenario of data processing and communication in a hybrid infrastructure of GEO and LEO satellites. LEO satellites are used to collect data from terrestrial IoT devices and carry out edge computing. The objective is to optimize the resources for computation and communication in order to meet latency constraints while minimizing the energy.
Furthermore, the objective of the present SatNEx V activity is to study medium/long term directions of space and satellite telecommunication systems for any of the commercial or institutional applications that can be considered appealing to key players in the space technologies domain but that are still not mature enough for attracting industry or initiating dedicated ESA R&D activities.
The SatNEx technical R&D activities will be based on a periodic definition/update of R&D directions and review of interim results which will involve independent experts and industrial partners belonging to ESA Member States that will be invited to the SatNEx Advisory board.
SatNEx V involves a range of university partners, including Aalborg University with researchers Assistant Professor Israel Leyva Mayorga, Professor Petar Popovski and Associate Professor Beatriz Soret from Department of Electronic Systems.
