Summary

 

The report provides information about new MEO/LEO/HEO-HTS projects in the frequency range of 37.5 — 52.4 GHz, which is conventionally denoted as V-band (the projects of Boeing, O3b, SpaceX, OneWeb, TSN). The report briefly formulates the problems of implementation and frequency supportof such systems.

 

As particularly interesting in the last two years can be considered projects on creation of multisatellite systems for the implementation of broadband access (BBA) in any point of the Earth. This Report provides information about new projects of Boeing, O3b, SpaceX, OneWeb, TSN, that are expected to be realized in the frequency range of 37.5 — 52.4 GHz (V-band).

 

The report also analyzes the characteristics of these projects and problems of realization.

 

A characteristic feature of these new projects is the desire to integrate them into designed systems at Ku/Ka bands. For example, the most famous project LEO-HTS OneWeb is planned to be complemented with a MEO-HTS satellite constellation in V-band the future.

This ideology is adapted by several companies. But the most ambitious project in the V-band was claimed by the company SpaceX (VLEO). The number of satellites in the constellation will increase to 7518 in orbits of approximately 350km.

 

Analysis of the published projects shows that today there is a competition in the satellite industry between satellite companies themselves and with operators of future 5G networks for occupying the frequency resource not only in Ka-band but also in V-band.
