The development of the Ground Segment for Q/V band satellite communications has to cope with many challenges needed to support high data rate transmissions: from the high efficiency of the antennas and power amplifiers to the Low Noise receivers. Furthermore, it is essential to counteract the atmospheric impairments with a system able to implement and manage a handover mechanism between gateways.
The QV-LIFT project not only will develop and integrate all the hardware and software building blocks for the future Q/V band Terabit SatCom systems but also will test them in a realistic scenario.
The QV-LIFT project, which is funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme, kicked off in November 2016 and will run for thirty months.
