[en] A main challenge towards realizing the next generation
Terabit/s broadband satellite communications (SatCom)
is the limited spectrum available in the Ka band. An attractive
solution is to move the feeder link to the higher Q/V band, where
more spectrum is available. When utilizing the Q/V band, due to
heavy rain attenuation, gateway diversity is considered a necessity
to ensure the required feeder link availability. Although receive
site diversity has been studied in the past for SatCom, there is
much less maturity in terms of transmit diversity techniques.
In this paper, a modified switch and stay combining scheme is
proposed for a Q/V band feeder link, but its performance is also
evaluated over an end-to-end satellite link. The proposed scheme
is pragmatic and has close to optimal performance with notably
lower complexity.
