Advanced Modulation and Coding Technologies in NewSpace

Presented by Ralph Kirchhoff and Dr. Ing. Yvonne Weitsch

Today’s satellite constellations consist of smaller satellites and miniaturized CubeSats - the icons of NewSpace, which revolutionizes the traditional space satellite communications sector. New business models emerge in the field of Earth observation, remote sensing, IoT and a wide range of communications. Broadband applications are in the focus, for which advanced modulation and coding technologies like DVB-S2X with beam-hopping capabilities and DVB-RCS2 are deployed. Likewise, proprietary waveforms based on terrestrial mobile communication standards like OFDM are also getting popular in NewSpace. Rohde & Schwarz, as a member of the DVB organization, has understood the potentials of beam hopping and made implementations for its testing next to other satellite transmission standards in the test and measurement equipment.

In this webinar, we will pinpoint the challenges and will showcase the possibilities on the leading-edge Rohde & Schwarz equipment.
