Abstract

Recent years have seen the development of a satellite communication system called a high-throughput satellite (HTS), which enables large-capacity communication to cope with various communication demands. Current HTSs have a fixed allocation of communication resources and cannot flexibly change this allocation during operation. Thus, effectively allocating communication resources for communication demands with a bias is not possible. Therefore, technology is being developed to add flexibility to satellite communication systems, but there is no system analysis model available to quantitatively evaluate the flexibility performance. In this study, we constructed a system analysis model to quantitatively evaluate the flexibility of a satellite communication system and used it to analyze a satellite communication system equipped with a digital channelizer.
