Downlink Resource Allocations of Satellite-airborne-terrestrial Networks Integration
This chapter studies the potential improvement in the Internet broadband of the data rate available to ground users by integrating terrestrial, airborne, and satellite stations. The goal is to establish dynamic downlink wireless services in remote or infrastructure-less areas. This integration uses satellite and high-altitude platforms (HAPs) the exosphere and stratosphere, respectively, for better altitude reuse. Hence, it offers a significant increase in scarce spectrum aggregate efficiency. However, managing resource allocation with deployment in this integrated system still faces difficulties. This chapter tackles resource management challenges by formulating and solving optimization problem to find the best HAPs’ location, access and backhaul associations, and transmit power allocation. Finally, we show how our results illustrate the advantages of the proposed scheme followed by some potential future works.
