    In this paper, a strobe double phase estimator technique is proposed with two reference strobe waveforms based on the strobe pulse method. The SDPE algorithm has a better performance with 75.1% to 82.5% than the conventional DPE for different BOC signals. However, the SDPE experiences a loss of -6 and -7.25 dB, respectively, in terms of the post-coherent signal-to-noise ratio

  3. A lightweight authentication scheme based on self-updating strategy for space information network

    Our paper proposes a lightweight authentication scheme based on the self-updating strategy for user's temporary identify. The proposed mechanism guarantees that only the registered users and trustworthy network control center can make the updating synchronized. The analysis works show that the proposed authentication scheme can meet all of the security requirements for space information network at the lowest computation and storage costs.

  4. Performance, cost analysis, and ground segment design of ultra high throughput multi-spot beam satellite networks applying different capacity enhancing techniques

    The present paper identifies and analyzes ground segment capacity-enhancing techniques for ultra-high-throughput multi-spot beam satellite networks operating in Q/V-band in the feeder link and in Ka-band in the user link. The impact of several capacity-enhancing techniques on system performance is analyzed using a realistic time step-based system simulator. Their impact on the ground segment costs is also analyzed.
