News from QV-LIFT #1

Welcome to the First Issue of our Newsletter!

QV-LIFT project will aim at developing up to date hardware and software technologies for the Ground Segment of the future Q/V band terabit Satcom infrastructure. QV-LIFT is supported by the Horizon 2020 programme of the European Commission.

This newsletter will keep readers informed about the project’s progress and ongoing results. This first issue will focus more on the QV-LIFT objectives, expected outputs and the work performed so far, as well as the participation to conferences and workshops and other forthcoming events.

We encourage you to stay informed and sign up to receive our newsletter at
We wish you a pleasant read!

Introducing QV-LIFT

Advances in satellite communications knowledge in High Throughput Satellite (HTS) in recent years have led to new requirements for significant developments of technologies. HTS systems represent a new generation of satellite communications systems, capable of delivering Terabit connectivity. In particular Q/V band frequencies offer larger bandwidth availability for the feeder links and for specific segments requiring high data rates such as aeronautical in-flight services.

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.
