Future Prospects of Key Technologies in Satcom

There is still a gap in the current broadband satcom network's technology development and future vision, with shortfalls in space network theory, intelligent technology, and networking technology. The differences in satellite and payload technology also constrain network and intelligent new technology applications. Therefore, the future focus should be on the following technology directions:

Satcom flexible high-throughput networked satellite technology

High-throughput satellites with multipoint beam and frequency reuse technology are driving the transformation of the broadband satellite network industry, and Tbps-level high-throughput communication satellites are an important foundation for future space network development. Breakthroughs include:

  • Technology for engineering application in the QN/W and terahertz frequency bands;

  • Flexible high-throughput satcom communication system architecture and resource management technology;

  • High-carrier-to-noise ratio and efficient satellite platform technology;

  • Broadband flexible payload technology.

Satcom high-performance, low-power consumption, and pool-based processing technology

To meet the broadband, diversified, and distributed collaboration requirements of future space-based networks and information services, the on-orbit regeneration processing, perception cognition, and collaborative capabilities of the satellite need to be improved. Breakthroughs include:

  • Satellite intelligent heterogeneous computing platform technology;

  • Satellite high-fault-tolerant self-redundant processing switch payload architecture and pool processing technology.

High-rate and miniaturized inter-satellite laser communication technology for satcom

The future space-based network requires higher communication rates, smaller scale satellite terminals, and lower terminal costs, requiring completely new in-orbit optical processing, switching, and laser terminal implementation technology. Breakthroughs include:

  • Inter-satellite laser terminal technology up to 100 Gbps;

  • Long-life radiation-resistant optical device technology for satellites;

  • High-dynamic inter-satellite and satellite-ground laser link capture and tracking technology.

Satcom communication self-organizing fully business-carrying space intelligent network theory and technology

Based on high-dynamic software-defined network technology, flexible self-organizing business-carrying can be realized to build space intelligent networks with cross-network heterogeneous interconnection and real-time interactive operation characteristics. Breakthroughs include:

  • Elastic heterogeneous multi-domain mixed space network architecture and intelligent networking cooperative theory;

  • Large-scale high-dynamic intelligent networking and routing technology for constellations;

  • Cross-domain self-organizing intelligent networking technology based on intention insight.
