  • Technology direction and R&D requirements for Advanced Satellite Mobile Systems (ASMS), Report on Technology direction and R&D requirements for the Advanced Satellite Mobile Systems Task Force (ASMS)


The aim of this report is to identify key technologies for the advancement of mobile satellite systems and study the necessary research and development actions.
The purpose of this document is threefold. Firstly, there is a significant benefit in outlining the state of the art of the present systems and technologies, which serve as a base for an evolutionary approach, to ensure smooth transitions and risk containment. Secondly, it is necessary to identify areas of potential improvement and innovation, which include not only weaknesses but also those items which are satisfactory and therefore do not lend themselves easily to further exploration. Thirdly, it is remarkably important to sketch lines for future R&D efforts, which can be used to set up consortia of industries and academic partners to respond to open invitations to tender and/or to participate to EC framework programmes.
