The key objectives of the J-ORTIGIA project are to:
To achieve the key milestone of the first part of the project, the J-ORTIGIA project will make use of the S-band payload of the ETS-VIII Japanese satellite, and of associated uplink facilities provided by NICT (National Institute of Information and Communication Technology). The ETS-VIII satellite can offer about 60dBW EIRP and this allows the verification of usage scenarios considered as typical for Mobile Broadcasting System via satellite. The purpose of the experiments is to focus on the test and validation of the reception of satellite signals with terminal antenna typical for handheld devices.
In order to simplify the achievement of all targets the project has been split in three Phases:
