Within the ATM-Sat project, the Satellite Group @ Fraunhofer FOKUS.cats
and its project partners have develop the system concepts for an
ATM-based communication network.
The system design was targeted towards a next-generation "network
in the sky" supporting multimedia communication for fixed,
portable, and mobile endsystems and users.
Key features of the system design are:
- a Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites constellation,
- on-board processing (OBP) and switching capacities, and
- advanced antenna technologies.
PDFs of the project
flyer and of the project
poster are available.
