MIMO TECHNIQUES FOR SATELLITE AND STRATOSPHERIC COMMUNICATION SYSTEMS: NETWORK OF EXCELLENCE

Abstract: 

The success story of MIMO spans now for over a decade and has revolutionized all aspects of wireless networks leading to its rapid embrace by the research community, standardization institutes and the industry. Application of MIMO technology to satellite and stratospheric communication systems have only recently begun to be investigated by academia and space agencies.

The proposed research activity aims at shaping and enhancing the next generation fixed, mobile and hybrid satellite and stratospheric communication systems through MIMO techniques by contributing to both the theoretical and practical aspects of satellite technology. Another significant goal is to create a Satellite Communications Network of Excellence in order to strengthen scientific and technological excellence on Satellite Communications Technologies in Greece through the durable integration of the research capacities of the participants and having in view setting up in the long term a Hellenic Space Agency.
