Summary and Strategy
The main objective of the DVB-S2 Satellite Experiment project is to perform an in-depth verification and optimisation by satellite of the many new features present in the DVB-S2 standard, such as high order modulations, enhanced coding and ACM, through extensive test campaigns consisting of field trials and measurements. The Institute of Communications and Navigation is contributing with an own development of a traffic generator/performance analyser and is participating in the measurement campaigns in C/Ku/Ka-bands. The Project is funded by the European Space Agency.
