SATNEX III - Satellite Communication Network of Experts

Start: 01 March 2010
End: 16 February 2011
Funding: Industry
Status: Due
Division: Communication Systems
Department: Array and Multi-Sensor Processing (A&MSP)

The work of the Satellite Communication Network of Excellence (SatNEx) initially supported by the European Union (EU) is continuing with support from ESA’s TIA Directorate through the Advanced Research in Telecommuncations Programme (ARTES) and the Technical Directorate Network of Centers programmes. Due to this shift in support, the name of the group has changed slightly to the Satellite Communication Network of Experts.

The third stage of SatNEx, SatNEx III, will continue with the support of ESA with a more focused approach. SatNEx III is comprised of 17 European research organisations and universities. The ESA- funded SatNEx Network of Experts continuation has been charged with several tasks including the exploration of techniques for supporting Terabit/s satellites, hybrid space/ground signal processing techniques and exploring new version of network protocols for satellite communications.
